The Brussels International Film Festival (BRIFF) is returning to its usual summer setting on the occasion of its 5th edition, unspooling from 23 June to 2 July in the heart of the Belgian capital. The line-up includes over thirty films as yet unseen in Belgium, as well as three competitions, three thematic sections (a focus on French film, and notably its recovery, a tribute to Italian cinema from the 50s and 60s, and a special selection dedicated to Fanny Ardant), open air screenings, workshops and professional gatherings.

The Chronicles of Love retrospective is the product of a collaboration between BRIFF and the Bologna Film Archive, which will allow audiences to rediscover Italian film masterpieces from the second half of the 20th century. Italian film will remain centre stage, on account of Fanny Ardant’s presence at the festival, through the screening of Ettore Scola’s La Famiglia. Other movies gracing the agenda include Lola Pater [+lee también:
