The Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival Seeks Submissions

The Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, the only Flemish genre film festival, takes place from Thursday November, 5 to Tuesday November, 10, 2015 in the city center of Bruges. During the course of 6 days, we present a quality selection of the best national and international genre films (fantasy, thrillers, action, comedies, animated films,...) to our audience, in a unique, intimate and cosy atmosphere! We also welcome many guests and we host lectures and Q&A's that enrich the visitor’s knowledge. 

These are important parts of the program:


Young Blood Award

With “Young Blood”, the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival offers a platform to starting film makers (first or second movie) and we put the spotlights on talented newcomers from the international genre film. The “Young Blood Award” rewards the best international starting film maker in the genre film.

Méliès d’Argent

In view of our adherence to the European Federation of Fantastic Film Festivals (EFFFF), we organize the Méliès d’Argent shorts competition, that awards the best European fantastic short film (max. 25 minutes). With this competition, the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival wants to support beginning and innovative European talented makers of short films and highlight the quality fantastic short film. The winner of the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival nomination can compete, along with other European nomination winners, for the Méliès d’Or for best European fantastic short film.

Best of the Festival – Audience awards

At the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, we also give the audience a voice by awarding an audience award for best short film and best feature film!
