cleo_copyright_maxime_lahousse

We're paying tribute to the admirably eco-responsible film shoot of Cleo that wrapped up a couple of weeks ago. With the support of both screen.brussels (fund and film commission) and the Flemish Audiovisual Fund, this genuine "Brussels" project combines artistic commitment with respect for the environment. The two organisations are making a concerted effort to support this wonderful project on the ground.
