SYSTEM_D UNDER RE_CONSTRUCTION
Dear film-makers, audience and drarriz,
It is with great regret that we have to announce that the Film Festival SYSTEM_D #4, planned for December 2018 at KVS has to be postponed.
Having arisen out of a need, SYSTEM_D has since its first appearance at BRONKS in 2012 always rolled out the red carpet for you.
In 2014 and 2016, the second and third festivals were at KVS and SYSTEM_D became the go-to Brussels festival for rising talent. This festival takes us on a trip in Brussels as seen through the eyes of its youngsters, with a deliberately raw and eclectic offer, uncensored and with no conditions imposed on its form.
The festival grew each time, became more visible, and is now a point of reference.
Each time we gave our all to make SYSTEM_D – your festival – a professional film festival. At the third festival in 2016 there were more than 3000 of you to celebrate this with us.
We offer you our sincere thanks for your support and your positive energy.
In the meantime, behind the scenes…
we still exist, thanks to a team of dedicated and outstanding volunteers… but with no operating grant. It was hard for us to admit it, but we are worn out, exhausted…
The time has come to breathe new life into the festival, to review the organisation and financing of the festival. Sometimes you just have to take a step backward in order to make a new and better start.
To be able to present the festival with the living force and energy behind it.
We are not giving up.
We thank our partners and those who have subsidised us for their confidence.
Thank you dear audience, thank you dear film-makers.
Keep on making films and tell the Brussels story from your own original perspective. We shall meet again in 2019!
The SYSTEM_D team: Samira, Loubna, Salim, Laura, Caroline, Monir, Ichame, Hajar, Roland, Hari and Angela.
