    • Synopsis
    • Knokke, Belgium. The casino of this mundane coastal town became the epicentre of one of the most important events in the history of experimental and avant-garde cinema. The legendary festival ‘EXPRMNTL’ was the meeting place for now equally legendary filmmakers and the battle field of a clashing bourgeoisie and counterculture in the 60s.

      ‘EXPRMNTL’ tells us how this posh seaside resort became the mythical gathering place for experimental filmmakers. This legendary festival earned Belgium its place in the pantheon of cinema history and contributed to the development of our contemporary image culture.
