The 17th edition of the Razor Reel Flanders Film Fest, the only Flemish genre film festival, takes place in Fall 2024, in the city center of Bruges. During the Razor Reel Flanders Film Fest, 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 Fest 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 Fest 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 Fest 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 Fest, we also give the audience a voice by awarding an audience award for best short film and best feature film!

Overall Rating
  • Sunita Soliar & Statten Roeg

    Razor Reels is a great festival. The team was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. They were always quick to respond to anything that came up. There was a very nice atmosphere at the festival and lots of interesting people, other filmmakers and critics and horror fans, to talk to. This is a great festival to attend and we were honoured that Spoor was a part of it.

    Fantastisch filmfestival voor genre film. Zeer vriendelijke organisatoren, communicatie en locatie top. Zeer leuk om te zienhoe ze blijven groeien. En nogmaals dank voor de selectie van mijn kortfilm: the last day.

    A wonderful festival. We were proud to have THE CREEPING screen at Razor Reel.

    Unfortunately we couldn't attend the festival itself but the communication was excellent and we were honoured to be part of the lineup.
