De achtenveertigste editie van het Internationaal Film Festival van Gent is achter de rug. We hebben tijdens het festival 55 films gezien; daar kan je nog 1 film aan toevoegen die we tijdens de persvoorstelling in september zagen. Tijd om eens stil te staan bij de films die we gezien hebben. Ik heb verschillende posts gemaakt met mijn persoonlijke bevindingen.

In de post Competitiefilms, bespreek ik kort de 15 geselecteerden uit de officiële competitie; in de post Jongeren heb ik het over 4 films die ook meedongen naar de ExploreZone award en 2 jeugdfilms. Ik zag dit jaar ook 7 Documentaires op het festival.

Wat betreft de andere langspeelfilms heb ik in de post Verrassingen en aanraders 3 "special tips" gekozen. Dit zijn films die me opvielen en die ik een duwtje in de rug wil geven. Ik heb 12 aanraders geselecteerd die in geen enkele competitie zaten en 2 films die ik eerder commerciële films zou noemen dan festivalfilms. Ik had nog 6 films over die ik in Overige films onderbracht en 5 films die ik Tegenvallers noemde.

Dit is de lijst van films die we dit jaar zagen (in chronologische volgorde):

Vraag me om de ranking morgen opnieuw te maken en dan zal je merken dat de top 5 en de bottom 5 ongeveer gelijk zal zijn, maar de volgorde van alles tussenin zal variëren van dag tot dag.
