The jury

Laurent Pecha

Long-time cinema lover Laurent Pécha is one of the pioneers of online film critique. After obtaining a law degree, he contributes to the creation of the website DVDrama in 1999. He later cofounds Ecran Large in 2004 and runs the website for over a decade. Since then, he has branched out to film production where he collaborated with many industry peers, all the while continuing his duties as a publication contributor, in print and online, as well as being a screenwriter on more personal projects.

Lars Damoiseaux

Antwerp based Dutchman Lars Damoiseaux is screenwriter and director of films, music videos and commercials. Best known for his dry & edgy comedy and powerful, dark visual style, he has been a writer on TV series like ‘Under- cover’ and ‘Grond’. His acclaimed feature film YUMMY, a graphic zombie comedy starring Maaike Neuville, Bart Hollanders and Benjamin Ramon has done an amazing festival tour wor- ldwide last year.

Marion Renard

Born in 1989, Marion Renard grows up surrounded by rock music, comics and midnight movies. In France and later in Belgium, she studies Literature and Cinema and completes her education in Filmmaking at the INSAS in 2018; always defending her passion for genre cinema, trash and B-movies. Her projects merge colour and emotional saturation, pop culture and fantasy mythology with upfront and playful depictions of sexuality and are known for their strong female characterisation. Her short film SWITCH (2018), a fantastic-erotic and rock’n’roll coming- of-age story, receives numerous international awards. She’s currently working on her first feature-length film, a mix of the work of Gregg Araki, Julia Ducournau and Xavier Dolan.

Didier Lefèvre

Didier Lefèvre was born on May 12th, as was a certain Jess Franco… Coincidence? We don’t think so! Growing up at the height of 1980s exploitation cinema and videoclubs, Didier falls madly in love with B-movies. In 1989, he creates Médusa, a groundbreaking fanzine (28 numbers as we speak). That’s not enough to quench his thirst for cinema and writing, so he launches another fanzine in 1997, Hammer Forever, dedicated to this cinematic landmark of English horror (40 publications to date). As head of the Médusa blog, avid fanzine collector and occasional radio host (“Radio Médusa” on Radio PFM), Didier somehow still manages to find time to help out his friends, contributing to a bunch of other fanzines : Vidéotopsie, Le Bissophile, Le Charognard, Darkness Fanzine, Fantasticorama, Horror Pictures… In 2013, he even writes and publishes his first novel ‘Le Gros’, released by Euryale publishing and – judging by his voracious passion – certainly not his last! How on earth, do you ask, does he still find time to be the frontman of the punk’n’roll band, Dead Rats, writing most of the lyrics himself? We have no idea… One thing we do know though. He’s definitely not from this planet!
