Una 39ma edizione 100% online per il BIFFF
The Shift di Alessandro Tonda

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

An extraordinary situation calls for an extraordinary edition. While last year, the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) was forced to keep its doors shut even before they’d had a chance to open, the organisers have (unfortunately) had time this year to rustle up a 100% online iteration, after having almost had the appealing opportunity to offer a hybrid version of the festival.

This will be a heartbreaking situation for a festival that is well known in Belgium and beyond for… its audiences – viewers who get incredibly involved, making their presence felt and expressing their enthusiasm, often rather rowdily. But be that as it may, this 39th edition will still take place despite everything, with a programme bursting with no fewer than 48 features, including three world, nine international and four European premieres. It’s also worth noting that the festival is presenting 11 films that were selected for last year’s “coronaborted” edition, so as not to bid farewell to 2020 without a dignified burial.
