Offscreen Brussels 2015: Line-up And Recommendations
Next week the Offscreen Festival in Brussels will start, providing an eclectic mix of films and events from the 4th of March till the 22nd of March. Most of the content can be considered "genre", as the festival has a strong slant towards action, horror, fantasy and science-fiction.
The Offscreen website has released the full programme, so here is an overview of the segments this year. Check out the gallery below, and click on the edge of the images to go to the next slide.
And please use the comments to chime in with your own recommendations and anticipations!
In the 1980s, the Israelian cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus set up a movie business like no other, bringing a deluge of unheard-of business practices and action films through their company Cannon. This year, the Offscreen Festival shows a selection of their output, and the documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films.
These are the action "Cannons" being shown:
Death Wish III (pictured above)
Missing in Action
Missing in Action 2: The Beginning
Ninja III: The Domination
The Delta Force
But there are also some of the more surprising, less specifically action-oriented titles:
10 to Midnight
Tough Guys Don't Dance
Masters of the Universe
King Solomon's Mines
Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo
