The spiciest festival in Brussels!

Event Details

  • This year, women will be take pride of place. Firstly, thanks to the festival's exclusively female jury, comprising women from the profession: Marianne Khoury, Hind Meddeb, Sophie Artus, Stéphanie Crayencour and Anne Paulicevich. Also, some of the films selected pay tribute to today's women, through movies where they refuse stereotypes, or open the discussion on the status of women. This initiative aims to counter male domination in the film industry.

    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Tunisian immigration in Belgium, the festival's organisers have also decided to pay tribute to Tunisia with the screening of a series of films presenting the country's history and its present-day reality. These two themes illustrate the Mediterranean Film Festival's original wish well: to reflect the rich multiculturalism of Belgium and Brussels and promote tolerance and education through film.

    This year, more than 70 short and feature, including nine premieres, will convey this message. The range of films on offer is very varied: from comedy to action and drama, everyone will find something to their taste. Indeed, the formula is very successful: every year, "Cinémamed" welcomes more than 10,000 festival-goers. In addition to screening various films, the festival offers other convivial events, always on the theme of the Mediterranean, with free concerts in the evenings or a market of mediterranean flavours.
