Belgian cinema is right in the front of the international filmmaking arena, boasting richly diverse films that consistently garner critical praise, worldwide interest and many international awards. From the unsettling but still urgently relevant MAN BITES DOG to the quirky and vibrant TOTO LE HERO, the monumental saga DAENS, the thriller DOSSIER K and THE KID WITH A BIKE by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne and the Oscar-nominated BULLHEAD, EVERYBODY FAMOUS, A CAT IN PARIS and DEATH OF A SHADOW, the Belgian film industry has proven its dexterity in tone and its originality in aesthetic.
