In response to the closure of movie theatres, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre has decided to support the release of Belgian films in virtual form (e-cinema) so as to allow a maximum number of viewers to discover these films in their own homes.
In addition to the decision made by a number of independent Belgian distributers to bring forward their recent films’ VOD availability, not to mention the organisation of film releases directly on VOD for the coming weeks, this initiative (promoted via a wide media campaign) should help allow the Belgian public to discover recent Belgian productions on their small (or mid-sized) screens.

The Minister for Culture Bénédicte Linard and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre are pleased to note that, during this troubled time, producers, distributers and broadcasters are coming together to propose an alternative to cinema releases for Belgian films (this news item might also be of interest), even if the primary distribution channel is, and should always remain, movie theatres.
So as to keep all the necessary information in one place, and to help users find films easily, the website lecinemabelgealamaison.be is providing a list of all the platforms where these films are available, as well as of platforms such as Auvio (RTBF), Proximus, Voo, Universciné and Uncut where viewers can also gain access to a great many Belgian films.
