HERVÉ LE PHUEZ APPOINTED DIRECTOR of WALLONIE BRUXELLES IMAGES

Hervé Le Phuez (44) has taken over from Eric Franssen at the head of Wallonie Bruxelles Images, the international audio-visual promotion agency in French speaking Belgium.

Hervé Le Phuez worked for almost 20 years programming the Namur International French Film Festival (Festival International du Film Francophone de Namur), becoming its director a few years ago.

He has helped to discover young talent both in front and behind the camera, by focusing on short films, with the creation of the Caravane du court - and by establishing numerous professional workshops such as Génération Talents for young actors or the La Manufacture, for fledgling directors.

"I am very happy to be joining Wallonie Bruxelles Images.
 There are and will be many challenges created by the health crisis which has paralysed the sector for a year already. It is essential to be present and to work closely with all the professionals in the sector to help them increase their international visibility.

I am looking forward to working with the whole team, by combining our forces with those of the Cinema and Audio-visual Centre and Wallonia Brussels International to promote the whole of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation’s offer worldwide."
