Film Fest Gent is Belgium's most prominent annual film event. It started in 1974 as a student's film festival and has developed into one of Europe's foremost film events. Variety called the festival one of the 50 "must attend fests”.
Every year in October Film Fest Gent present some 100 feature films and 50 shorts from all over the world in various sections to an audience of over 100,000 spectators. The program of the 43rd edition (11 - 21 October 2016) of Film Fest Gent is inspired by cinema from two different corners of the earth: starting with the most Northern point of Europe for its Focus on Nordic Cinema and ending in the far East for the Spotlight on Japan.
