We asked frequent Screen Flanders applicants such as Annemie Degryse of Lunanime: “What makes Flanders so unique as a co-production partner?”
We have a very wide range of shooting possibilities in Flanders. We have a lot of eclectic styles, which means that we can shoot old-fashioned, historical and modern scenes as well. We have a lot of studios and we have a very good underwater studio, which I think is unique in Flanders and in Europe.
