BRIDGES Festival on February’s film agenda

From 18 to 27 February, Bozar is honouring Eastern European cinema for the fifth time in a row. This year, all eyes will be on Georgia and Ukraine.

Now in its fifth edition, BRIDGES East Of West Films Days will be focusing on contemporary and recent cinema from Georgia and Ukraine with six screenings. Exactly thirty years after the collapse of the Soviet Bloc, these two nations are still largely absent from our screens, with the exception of international festivals such as Berlin, Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Locarno or Rotterdam.

Ukraine and Georgia can boast of being particularly active countries in the field of cinema and offer an aesthetic universe with a particular flavour, which has found its way to Belgian and Brussels audiences.

Most of the films will be screened in the presence of their directors. Due to the health crisis and the many restrictions it imposes, this edition of BRIDGES will be limited to 6 films.

Since last year, SOONER has been our partner and the ideal platform to revisit the films shown at Bozar. You can still (re)watch four films from the previous edition at SOONER: Donbass, My father is my mother’s brother, The Wild Fields, The tribe.
