The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival rouses the European capitol from its winter sleep for the most expected cinematographic event of the year. Bursting to the seams with amazing spectacles and original manifestations (the Make-Up Contest, the International Body Painting Contest, the Zombie Parade in the heart of Brussels, the Japanimation Day, the Manga Market, the Cosplay Contest, the renowned Vampire Ball and many other festivities) the BIFFF is a warm and atmospheric celebration of everything related to the genre.
During 13 days (what a magic number!) there will be more than 100 films shown, both world- and international premieres, ranging from Fantastic, Thriller, Science-fiction, Horror and Cult to Underground cinema, and special screenings such as the Fantastic Night and Midnight X-tremes.
Each year, the BIFFF welcomes more than 60 000 spectators and invites more than 100 international guests, making it one of Europe's leading film festivals.
Brussels is one of the founding members of the Federation together with Sitges.
