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 ten days of FFO, Ostend transforms into a vibrant city festival where international and national (film) professionals come together, and where a sizable audience (46,000 visitors in 2019) of cinephiles, locals and tourists enjoy the wide range of films and events.

Ostend Film Festival, or FFO for short, is an annual highlight for the Flemish film profession. It combines an extensive range of Flemish film and television productions with a high-quality international selection.

15 years Ostend Film Festival

The organisation of FFO consists of a small core team of employees who have a great love for film and Ostend. Our team expands every year in the run-up to the festival with our colleagues from Tourism Ostend, temporary professionals, freelancers, interns and volunteers.
