Information

Every year during spring break, the JEF festival offers you a selection of excellent films. On the programme is a multitude of premières, exclusive events, films programmed by and for youngsters, documentaries, screenings for pre-schoolers, and so much more! Shorts and features in competition are judged by a children’s jury, a professional jury, the audience and the participants of the JEF in het hospital project. Meet the international guests or take a look behind the film scenes in the company of film professionals in our masterclasses. The JEF festival takes place on several festival locations, in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, Courtrai and Strombeek-Bever (Brussels). 

At the Antwerp festival location, families are invited to come and experiment in the medialab, JEF’s digital playground.

The festival juries are handing out several prizes. Some of them come with a cash reward, while the Felix Vanginderhuysen Distribution Award guarantees the winning film a distribution in film theatres across Flanders.
