Two Walloon festivals, an avalanche of films Wallimage

  • 25.02.2020

This year, two of the film festivals organized in Wallonia will overlap. The fault lies with… Berlin. The postponement of the Berlinale by one month has forced many events across Europe to change their programming dates. Among the collateral victims, the international film festival of Mons which had taken the habit of being held around Valentine’s Day.

The event in Montpellier, which has risen from its ashes under the presidency of Maxime Dieu, will begin this Friday 6 with the opening of a first feature film co-financed by Wallimage. The preview screening of La Bonne épouse, co-produced in Belgium by Umedia, will be organized at the Theater of Mons at 8pm.
It is also in the theater that the event will close on Friday 13 with another film of the Wallimage line-up, namely Jumbo by Zoé Wittock (Kwassa) selected at Sundance and recently awarded in Berlin.
On Saturday 7th, at the Imagix cinema, Wallimage will have a whole evening with the preview of La dernière vie de Simon (Wrong Men) at 7:30 pm and an exceptional screening of Gangsters, the first film co-financed by Wallimage, almost 20 years ago. In the presence of its main actor and president of the festival jury, Richard Anconina.
The films of the river will also be honored twice during this festival. On Sunday at 3pm, Le jeune Ahmed will be screened at Imagix in a version adapted for the deaf and hard of hearing, while on Monday, you can (re)see Jacques Audiard’s formidable De Rouille et d’os (6pm at the Abel Dubois auditorium) and Costa Gavras’ Le Couperet (8pm at Imagix).
Beyond all these films in which Wallimage participated, the festival offers many previews. You can discover the program HERE 


The Belgian Film Festival of Moustier is a must for Belgian film lovers and is recommended for its legendary sense of conviviality. It will be held from Monday March 9 to Sunday March 15. It is also placed under the sign of Wallimage since it is Philippe Reynaert who will present all the projections.

This festival of Belgian blue and white cinema will open with the exceptional screening of Jumbo by Zoé Wittock, on Monday March 9 at 8pm. Other Wallimagian feature films will be screened throughout the week.


Wednesday 11 at 8pm, My Father’s Forest by Véro Cratzborn (Iota) will have a national premiere on Thursday 12 at 5:30 pm. Third Wedding by David Lambert (Frakas), Friday 13 at 5:30 pm The young Ahmed (films du fleuve) and Saturday 14 at 5:30 pm, Adoration by Fabrice Du Welz.
