2023 Wallonia-Brussels: Woodworth, Lafosse, Guit Bros., Baloji, Mitevska & Laura Wandel Receive Coin

The folks at the Centre du Cinéma et de l’Audiovisuel de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles folks are throwing some coin support towards 27 fiction feature films. We find several top Belgian filmmakers setting up projects for 2024 shoots and for probable 2025 playdates. At the top of the list we find sophomore features from the likes of Harpo and Lenny Guit (Sundance preemed Mother Schmuckers (2021) and Laura Wandel (Cannes Un Certain Regard breakout Playground) joining established vets such as Jessica Woodworth (who is now working on L’Incubatrice), Joachim Lafosse (who is setting up Les Petits Voleurs for a Spring 2024 shoot) and Baloji (an Un Certain Regard winner this year) who is already moving into his sophomore feature. Another on of our faves is Teona Strugar Mitevska (The Happiest Man in the World) who is prepping Mother – a fiction-based biopic about Mother Teresa which could have journalists spill a lot of ink.
