The Corbeau d’Or for the BIFFF 2015 goes to “Frankenstein” by Bernard Rose

The feature-length film “Frankenstein”, by the British director Bernard Rose, was awarded the Corbeau d’Or during the closing ceremony for the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). It was held at the Palais des Beaux-Arts. The film was shown during the festival, the world première. The two Corbeaux d’Argent were given to “The Infinite Man” by the Australian Hug Sullivan and “Goodnight Mommy” by the Austrians Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala.

The Spanish Film “La Isla Minima” by Alberto Rodriguez won the “Thriller” category.

The Hungarian director Karoly Uij-Meszaros left with the Grand Prix du 7e parallèle as well as the Pégase public prize for his first feature-length film, “Liza, the Fox Fairy”.

Finally, the prize for Best European Fantastic Film, the “Méliès d’Argent”, went to “Another Frontier”, by the Spaniard André Cruz Shiraiwa. The film will therefore compete for the “Méliès D’Or”, which is awarded by the Federation for Fantastic Films every year.

No less than 125 films were shown to the public during the 33rd Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). Three were world premières. The festival ran from the 7th to the 19th of April.
