Felix Van Groeningen has just kicked off the shoot for his fifth feature film, Belgica. The movie follows the story of two brothers who, even though they have absolutely nothing in common, open a bar together that quickly becomes a regular hangout for nighthawks.
After their mother’s funeral, two brothers stick around in her native village where Vincent (21) adopts the lifestyle of drug use and nihilistic behavior of his older brother Sjoerd (26). How great is the love between the brothers, for their deceased mother and for life itself?

Chez Nous, a Mission Impossible?
Chez Nous is a story about friendship focussing on a group of friends who resort to a Mission Impossible-style diamond heist to save their favourite café from bankruptcy. This heist is set against the backdrop of Amsterdam’s famous canal parade. Of course, some pretty impossible stuff has to happen to make all of this possible – and this is where the VFX come in.
Do you like it RAW?!
Remember shooting your feature on film stock? For most of us it’s a long time ago and some of us even forgot how 35 mm negative looks like.
