Four awards won by Wallonia Brussels films at the Music & Cinema festival!

The winners of the Music & Cinema festival in Marseille have been announced. Among the laureates, we find two Belgian francophone short films, both having won two awards.

The International Music & Cinema festival, created in 1999, celebrates the union between music and cinema. With an eclectic programme of films and concerts, it offers a unique immersive experience for music and cinema enthusiasts. Among the award-winning films this year, there are two films from Wallonia Brussels.

F*cking Head  by Grégory Carnoli and Thibaut Wohlfahrt (Big Trouble in Little Belgium) won the Matthieu Hoche Award and the Grandir Award. Valéry Carnoy's film, Titan, won the Best Film Program 2 Award from middle and high school students and the Jacques Prévert Award.

Those awards reflects a strong presence of French-speaking Belgium this year, with a very nice selection of feature films and short films and many professionals from Wallonia Brussels.

The short film competition included two other Wallonia-Brussels productions in addition to F*cking Head by Grégory Carnoli & Thibaut Wohlfahrt (Big Trouble in Little Belgium) : Tiger by François Bierry (Composite Films) and the co-production It Takes a Village… by Ophelia Harutyunyan (Matching Socks).

Among the feature-length films, Emmanuelle Nicot's Love According to Dalva, produced by Hélicotronc, was also selected for the competition. It is worth noting that this film has been on in French cinemas since 22 March.

The titles selected outside the competition included in particular the Arnaud Demuynck and Rémi Durin film Yuku and the Himalayan Flower, produced by Artémis Productions and La Boîte… Productions, and the Eve Duchemin feature-length film Time Out, produced by Kwassa Films.

Many Belgian French-speaking short films were also to be found in various competitive sections. For details, consult the full programme, now. Finally, a great many French-speaking Belgian music professionals will be present at the festival thanks to the initiative undertaken by Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques in its film music support programme!
