Fortis Film Days and “Cinevox Happenings” 2012

  • 05.09.2012

On 19, 20, 21 and 22 September 2012, a large number of cinemas in Belgium will be participating in the BNP Paribas Fortis Film Days event.

During these four days, all film screenings will be priced at the special rate of € 4.

In addition, “Cinevox Happenings” – a series of premieres screened in the presence of the actors, directors, technicians, producers and others involved in the films – will be held for the second consecutive year. This year, Cinevox has opted to focus on two works: “Dead Man Talking” and “La Tête La Première” (“Headfirst”).

“Dead Man Talking” is Patrick Ridremont's first feature film, enhanced by a colourful cast that includes François Berléand, Virginie Efira and Jean-Luc Couchard. Off the wall, dark, emotional and tense, this dramatic tale served up with an extra portion of black humour takes us to the heart of a strange prison, where a condemned prisoner speaks out in order to avoid his own execution. It's the most highly anticipated Belgian film of the year.

Selected at Cannes, “La Tête la Première” is the work of Amélie Van Embt, a young director from Namur. This offbeat, funny and irreverent road movie is also a love story between two young adults who want to invent a life that is truly their own. It features two exceptional actors: Alice de Lencquesaing, and the up-and-coming Belgian star, David Murgia.

As a bonus, Cinevox will also be screening “The Expatriate”, an international thriller filmed in Brussels, with special effects created in Belgium.
Comedies, fantasies, thrillers ... The BNP Paribas Fortis Film Days offer the unique opportunity to discover films that are already in theatres, as well as to discover a wide selection of highly anticipated feature films.
