The international film festival for young audiences Filem’On is holding its 15th edition this year from October 27 until November 6, 2021.
During 11 days, we’ll be showing unique films to schools, families and associations in various theaters and cultural houses of Brussels. More than 130 films, in all formats and of all genres, for children and teens between 2 and 16, will be programmed. Many films will compete for a Belgian, international or European award, in the presence of the director or actor. In addition, there are many fun workshops and cinema concerts especially curated for children and young people. The city of Brussels is put in the spotlight through our fascinating cinematic walk.

‘The Silhouettes on the Train’ from Taartrovers is a theatrical installation. When you sit on the train and look outside, you see a lot. And it moves; in the distance slowly, nearby at a brisk pace. It's a bit like a film with these still images moving. And what do you see? Can you think of a story to go with it?
