In the spring of 2024, Film Fest Gent and four Ghent partners are joining forces to organise three film events under the banner ‘Film Fest Gent Offroad’. The programme is made up of films selected by the young members of non-profit organisation Jong and youth centre Nieuw Gent as well as teachers and students of the NT2 course ‘Dutch for non-native speakers’.
