Festivals: 13th Mediterranean Film Festival, Brussels

img_9608Some 70 films (fiction, documentaries, shorts), will provide a taste of recent films from Mediterranean countries in the 13th Mediterranean Film Festival, which comes to La Botanique in Brussels from 5-12 December 2013.

New in 2013

Organised every two years since 1989, the Brussels Mediterranean Film Festival (MED) has become an unmissable event for fans of cinema.

Due to the success of this event, which has grown and grown, the MED will now take place every year.

By turning this biennial event into an annual one, the MED will be able better to promote and distribute the latest films from the Mediterranean, engaging visitors in the contemplation, every year, of the region’s many issues via the medium of film.

This year, the event will be taking place as part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the signing of bilateral agreements on Moroccan and Turkish workforces in Belgium.

The greenhouses of the Botanique gardens become the meeting point for all those who want to discover gems of the 7th art from Mediterranean countries.

You will be able to:

  • Meet special guests such as actors, directors and producers:
  • move to the sounds of the melodies of the south during concerts and musical evenings, and;
  • taste the many flavours of the Mediterranean market.

As the Brussels sky turns grey and the cold weather arrives, the MED has just what you need to warm right up!

Tickets are on sale at La Botanique or online here.
