Nuit Blanche honors 20th century cinema

The 12th edition of Nuit Blanche takes place this Saturday.  This year, the Brussels cultural event will be showcasing cinema of the twentieth century. As in every edition, the idea behind Nuit Blanche is to (re) discover the urban environment, in a particular context, from dusk until dawn.

This year, the course will be structured in a triangle between the Exchange, Rogier and Galeries Royales with Brouckère Square in the center. The square will be closed to vehicles and serve as the central point of the party.

The program includes a myriad of well-known and lesser-known artists who will be highlighted through films, original creations, concerts, performing arts and visual arts. The evening, which is free of charge, promises to be full of discoveries.

For the occasion, vehicles will not have access to Brouckère Square and Anspach, Emile Jacqmain and Adolphe Max Boulevards on October 4th and 5th
