Brussels, 16 to 26 October 2008

38 unedited films brought together in one international competition.
Bolstered by the success of the first edition, the Festival des Libertés intends to celebrate cinematographic creation each year as a vector of resistance and cultural unity through a program of unedited, international films embellished with meetings with the creators.

A jury comprised of personalities from diverse backgrounds will choose the film that, by its content, its engagement and its power of renunciation, reflects the questions brought to the festival regarding the defense of rights and liberties.
