Bifff 2012

Bifff 2012   BIFFF2012 A4 ENG1 84x120 The 30th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival has come and gone. Unlike my good colleague, dear friend & horror movie blood brother Aaron Christensen, I didn’t feel the urge to watch and review every single film shown at this year’s edition of the BIFFF (he’s quite the completist when it comes to these things and you can go read all about his Brussels adventures, including the many movie reviews, over at his Horror 101 blog). Instead, I opted to watch various movies on a comfortable schedule as I went along. Just to be able to present you an overview consisting of 30 movies, watched over the course of the 13-days-long festival. And what a fun ride it was.

Before I forget, a big shout-out to this year’s amazingly enthusiastic & perfectly skilled BIFFF press team. The festival simply wouldn’t have been the same without all of you. I’m talking about head honcho Jonathan Lenaerts and his lovely ladies with their distinct talents, utterly loveable personalities and various nationalities. Here’s a photo of them taken during the night of the festival’s notorious Vampire Ball, a night of partying, a lot of make-up & costumes, dancing, chit-chatting and an abundance of Cuvée des Trolls…
