About FFO

Ostend Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in Belgium, distinguishing itself with a unique Flemish film programme and an inclusive, audience-friendly, but above all atmospheric character. During nine days of FFO, Ostend transforms into a vibrant city festival where international and national (film) professionals come together, and where a sizable audience of cinephiles, locals and tourists enjoy the wide range of films and events.

FFO is the film event that combines an extensive range of Flemish film and television productions with a high-quality international selection.
