Violet by Bas Devos, user sequences by Herman Asselberghs & Fairuz


After numerous international festivals Violet finally has its first Belgian screenings in Gent, Brussels & Antwerp. Bas Devos' feature film debut contains sequences directed by Herman Asselberghs & Fairuz, bringing a feel of online media intimacy to this slow-burning account of a teen's grieving process after the murder of his best friend. This week Violet won at Festival du Nouveau Cinéma de Montréal the AQCC Award (Association Québécoise des Critiques de Cinéma) and the Daniel Langlois Innovation Award "for its daring aesthetics, creative use of new technologies and/or groundbreaking treatment of a sensitive subject matter". And at Film Fest Gent the film received the Knack Focus Jo Röpcke Award and Boris Debackere won the Georges Delerue Award for Best Sounddesign.

In April 2014 Auguste Orts launched On & For Production, an initiative to facilitate the production of artists' films. As part of the project, María Palacios Cruz was commissioned a report on its foundations, expectations and outcomes. It is now available here.
