Followed by the Q&A with female directors *, moderated by Jehanne Bergé (in French)


The Graines de Cinéastes project promotes female* filmmakers who are starting their career in Belgian cinema. We want to contribute to the visibility and representation of the new generation of female* filmmakers.

This year, we will focus on filmmakers’ first and second productions of short films of all genres.

Graines de Cinéastes has taken root in the not-profit organization Elles Tournent - Dames Draaien, which promotes and values the work of women* in the artistic and cultural world in general and especially in the audiovisual sector.

* Anyone who identifies as a « woman »


With this program, we wish to give a voice to female* directors, to select movies that favours the way the filmmaker looks at the world and its translation in the film.

Faced with the rich diversity of topics, we did not want to make a too narrow choice. However, in the background, two themes emerge and guide the vision of these films.


The second projection is focused on the line between insouciance, lightness and a return to "reality". This moment when time flies and escapes, when life tips over to a "new stage".
