Work in Progress

BIF Market – @Brussels – 30 August 2022 - 2 September 2022

Submissions for the 2022 Works in Progress are now open.

Deadline 15 July 2022.

The BIF Market is focusing on genre cinema: thriller, fantasy, science-fiction, horror, gore, heroic fantasy, monster movies, cult, fairy tales, surrealism…

It’s the place to be for everyone working on a genre project. 

Brussels is geared more and more towards cinema and offers various services to different productions ! If we add to this regional and federal support mechanisms (tax shelter,… ) and the presence of one of the biggest genre film festivals in the world, Brussels thus positions itself more and more as a central hub for genre cinema. In addition, besides Belgian professionals, encounters with numerous international professionals will attend the market. So if you have a genre project, don’t hesitate to submit !


  1. Submit your Work In Progress
  2. Pitch and present your WIP
  3. Meet Belgian VFX and production companies
