The 15th edition of the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, the only Flemish genre film festival, takes place in Fall 2022, in the city center of Bruges. During the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, we present a quality selection of the best national and international genre films (fantasy, thrillers, action, fantastic comedies, animated films,...) to our audience, in a unique, intimate and cosy atmosphere! We also welcome many guests and we host lectures and Q&A's that enrich the visitor’s knowledge.



With YOUNG BLOOD, the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival offers a platform to starting film makers (first or second movie) and we put the spotlights on talented newcomers from the international genre film. The YOUNG BLOOD AWARD rewards the best international starting film maker in the genre film.


In view of our adherence to the Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF), we organize the MELIES D'ARGENT SHORTS COMPETITION, that awards the best European fantastic short film (max. 25 minutes). With this competition, the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival wants to support beginning and innovative European talented makers of short films and highlight the quality fantastic short film. The winner of the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival nomination can compete, along with other European nomination winners, for the Méliès d’Or for BEST EUROPEAN FANTASTIC SHORT FILM.


At the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival, we also give the audience a voice by awarding an audience award for best short film and best feature film!

  • It was a really pleasure to be part of this festival!!!

    Even though I wasn´t able to attend to the festival, I´m very happy to have been part of the festival with my short film HAY ALGO EN LA OSCURIDAD (SOMETHING IN THE DARKNESS).

    Thanks a lot to the director and crew of the festival for their great attention and kindness, thank you so much!

    For me as a spanish filmmaker ist´s a great opportunity to show my work outside my country, thanks!

    I hope to have the opportunity again to be in the festival in the future. See you soon RAZOR!
