Millenium - The Brussels International Documentary Film Festival
Renowned international event for the general public and professionals who love documentary films. In Brussels from 31/05 to 09/06/13!
In 2013, Millenium Festival will be celebrating its 5th anniversary and will offer 100 documentaries from the four corners of the globe! This edition's schedule will take place around the theme of "Everything's for sale".
A selection of stunning films will explore the mechanisms of 'global business' in an attempt to reveal its nature, faults and its weaknesses.
The films and discussions with their creators will enable a decrypting of the effects of this global phenomenon of our society.
Created to showcase the Millennium Development Goals defined by the United Nations in 2000, the festival aims to show what is at stake and the major ideals of our era...
The Web-Doc Meetings!
Millenium Festival will also organise Web-Doc Meetings on the 1st and 2nd of June: a series of activities and meetings dedicated to web-documentaries and cross-medias.
This new form of expression is a growing success and is aimed both at traditional cinema enthusiasts and the new 'Internet generation'. David Dufresne, director of well-known web-documentary 'Prison Valley' will be Patron of the event.
For the occasion, the festival will organise a pitching competition.
The principle is simple: write a proposal of a web-documentary and present it in front of industry professionals. Participants must submit their proposals before the 20/05/13.
The 5 best proposals will be presented by their writers to a panel made up of: creators, famous producers and distributors who will also provide input and advice.
After the presentations, two prizes will be awarded:
- A €2500 grant towards production of the project,
- the finished web-documentary will shown on the website of newspaper Le Soir.
The festival venues are: le Flagey, le Vendome and the CIVA!
