Locarno, Angoulême, Köln, Venice... did you get our postcards?
Back to work, already, or was there even a summer break? Here is a quick look back at some of the events over the last few weeks that you might have missed. Our teams and talents in Brussels have indeed been busy:
Locarno, talents at work
During the Locarno Film Festival, a special event part of the Cineuro project gave 10 producers - among which 2 from Brussels - the chance to take part to the Film Market and present their work in progress. The play.brussels cluster hosted by hub.brussels joined the journey of two Brussels-based companies : Wajnrbosse Production & Les Films de la Récré, presenting their work : Carlota, impératrice du Néant & Aride to a large panel of industry key players.
Three films in Angoulême

Köln, the EU video games celebration
Every year, the biggest cultural Industry in the world gets its European celebration in Köln. The 2022 édition of the GAMESCOM (Auguste 23-27) was an occasion that a crowded delegation from Brussels did not miss. A great number of companies, investors and politics went to Köln, shining the light to the Brussels-based talents and initiatives, supported by the play.brussels cluster, in charge of the regional development of the industry.

What about Venice
The Mostra de Venise is without doubt one of the major and more prestigious Industry event, with its international competition as well as professional gatherings such as the Venice Production Bridge, and a strong focus on immersive work and XR. The film REINES (supported by screen.brussels) will close the festival. The film of Yasmine Benkiran is produced by Need Productions with Montfleuri Productions, Petit Film, Key Film and Deuxième ligne. The cluster play.brussels is also supporting companies (production, post-production, XR specialists etc.) at the Festival in their networking initiatives.
