This year’s line-up of projects supported by Belga’s co-production and Tax Shelter financing branches is impressive and widely diversified as it includes feature films, TV series, animated feature films and TV series, documentaries and short-films, coming from Canada, Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Among these 30 projects, Belga is currently co-producing three high-profile films:
- Paul Verhoeven’s next film, Benedetta, starring Virginie Efira, Charlotte Rampling and Lambert Wilson. Two years after Elle, Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Total Recall) won’t shy away from controversy by taking us to 17th century Italy and a monastery where Benedetta (Virginie Efira) suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions.

- The sequel of Qu’est ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?, France’s 6th most successful film ever with 12M viewers in France and 175M$ box-office worldwide.
- Le Prince Oublié, directed by Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) and starring Omar Sy and Bérénice Béjo.
In addition to Tax Shelter financing by Belga Films Fund, these three projects are benefiting from local production services by Belga Productions and will be distributed in Benelux by Belga Films and its Dutch affiliate Independent Films.
