As far as I can remember, I‘ve always loved the month of April. Child, he was the meaning of the end of the school year approaching, egg hunts, and almost nothing changed during my adolescence . Young adult in college, April sounded the death knell of procrastination and brought me back to the reality of the exams period. Adult, entrenched in the professional world, April now has the scent of passing time, awareness of the precariousness of anything but perpetual renewal. April reassuring me. Then as now everything seems possible during this month . Days and apéro are getting longer, the terraces are stormed,and other sorts of activities animate Brussels. In this regard here is my selection of events for this month:
Millénium, The International Documentary Festival is back for the 6th edition with documentaries from all around the world. There’s matter to consider and debate around the themes of this edition ie North / South relations, music and media influence. Dare to get out of your comfort zone. For our highest good.

It is back to play us a bad (good) turn. « It, » of course, is the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival or BIFFF . Gore cinema preview, and B-grade masterpiece will be present without forgetting the now traditional Zombie Parade and Vampire Bal. Because if the exhibitions and openings is very nice, release the pressure without any complex is also pretty cool!
