A hotbed of young talent, the Cannes sidebar also honoured Belgium with two awards (the SACD and ACID/CCAS prizes), which went to Christophe Van Rompaey’s debut Flemish feature Moscow, Belgium (see news). Produced by A Private View with backing from VAF (Flemish Audiovisual Fund) and private television network VTM, the film was surrounded by an enthusiastic buzz at the Market, where it was sold by Germany’s Bavaria (see news).
