Over the past two decades, Belgian cinema has risen to prominence in the international filmmaking arena, boasting richly diverse films that consistently garner critical praise and worldwide interest. From the unsettling but still urgently relevant MAN BITES DOG to the quirky and vibrant TOTO LE HERO, the monumental saga DAENS and the Oscar- nominated BULLHEAD, EVERYBODY FAMOUS and the animated A CAT IN PARIS (co-produced by Lunanime), the thriller DOSSIER K and the string of critically-lauded dramatic works by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (THE KID WITH A BIKE), the Belgian film industry has proven its dexterity in tone and its originality in aesthetic.
"Grit and Whimsy" is the monthly Belgian film series organized by the Consulate General of Belgium in partnership with the American Cinematheque. One Wednesday a month is Belgian movie night in Los Angeles! The latest upcoming screenings are listed below, with more to be announced.
