People make films all over the world. Only a fraction of these make it to our cinemas or to our screens. MOOOV selects differently and goes all over the world looking for films and directors that combine quality and relevant content. This way, MOOOV aims to be a powerful brand for powerful films from all over the world.
Since the very beginning, MOOOV has been using the tagline Films Facing the World. That tagline provides MOOOV with meaning in all its activities. For years now, MOOOV has been going all out for commitment – to raise awareness, to confront and to inform an audience via film. That commitment is tangible in all the aspects of its activities.
MOOOV is an initiator of all sorts of temporary and permanent activities built around the programming and screening of high-quality films from the five continents. The programming and screening of films take place in a context of awareness and education, to enhance the Belgian audience’s knowledge, respect and appreciation of cultures other than the Western one. It may undertake any kind of action to achieve this goal. It can also, though only in a secondary manner, undertake commercial activities, but only if the profits from these are devoted to the goal for which MOOOV was founded.
