In Motion. Animated Film in Flanders
(Wim de Poorter) The Low Countries - 1995, № 3, pp. 53-61
About the state of the animation film in Flanders, including a survey of the most important filmmakers. Unfortunately, neither the national radio and television station BRTN nor the commercial TV station VTM have shown any interest either in children' s films or in adult films. Moreover since the setting up of a fund for film production following the new decree on film of 1 January 1994, the genre of short films to which most animated films belong has been seriously threatened. In the meantime, the so-called ‘de-taxation scheme' which made the distribution of Flemish short films financially interesting for distributors and cinema owners has been scrapped. Confronting this growing problem is the unique artistic character of Flemish animated film. In the long term it is in precisely this area that Flemish film has the capacity to prove itself internationally.
