A note from the MIFF

The Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF) strongly condemns the disruption of the screening of LOVE LIES BLEEDING at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF), one of its core members.

The MIFF and its 31 member festivals around the world stand for a tolerant, safe and inclusive environment. Expressions of racism, homophobia, misogyny, as well as any derogatory behaviour are not tolerated by the Code of Conduct of the MIFF and its member festivals.

The MIFF and its members enforce this Code and reserve the right to take appropriate measures should any of its members breach the Code or parts thereof.

The BIFFF management is working hard to resolve this issue. Going forward, the MIFF and its members will take any steps necessary to ensure that fantastic film festivals will remain safe and inclusive spaces to enjoy the cinema we all love so much.
