Boulevard du Polar

Season 1 – Act 1

The “Festival Boulevard du Polar 2017” will be fantastic!

As an appetizer for the festival, which will take place in June, the BIFFF rolls out the red carpet for the crime novel on Friday 14 April at 2pm in Bozar.

Do we still need to accentuate the strength of the connection between books and movies!? Further proof will be provided with these three activities:

  • The crime novel, an instrument of social protest, with Marin Ledun and Patrick Raynal, who’s also chairman of the Thriller Jury.
  • The crime novel, a powerful weapon of mockery and irony, especially if Nadine Monfils has a say in it.
  • A masterclass with Franck Thilliez and Stéphane Bourgoin.

These meetings will be followed by signing sessions in the crime library situated in the middle of the BIFFF.

And to end this day in style, the projection at 6pm of the film Will You Be There?, an adaptation of the novel by Guillaume Musso. Followed at 8.30pm by a Q&A session with our two guests, Guillaume Musso and Korean director Ji-Young Hon.
