Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD) has been operating as an independent film distributor in Belgium and Luxembourg since 1997. Rising from humble beginnings, KFD emerged as one of the largest independent film distributors during the following years.
Specializing in Flemish movies, KFD has become a fixture in the Belgian film landscape. Among its greatest 2016 successes were ACHTER DE WOLKEN with Chris Lomme and Jo De Meyere, HELDEN VAN DE ZEE, a movie based on kids’ channel Ketnet’s popular series, Erik Van Looy’s DE PREMIER with Koen De Bouw in the lead and phenomenon DE BUURTPOLITIE – DE GROTE GELDROOF.
For 2017, all eyes are on the romantic comedy ALLEMAAL FAMILIE featuring top-tier talent such as Nathalie Meskens, Bill Barberis, Steve Geerts and many others, H.I.T., with the immensely popular De Romeo’s, CARGO, the feature film debut of Bevergem creator Gilles Coulier, the new movie by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead): LE FIDÈLE (RACER AND THE JAILBIRD) with Matthias Schoenaerts and Adèle Exarchopoulos, and the closing chapter to the Vincke & Verstuyft movie trilogy, HET TWEEDE GELAAT, directed by Jan Verheyen, introducing – again – Koen De Bouw and Werner De Smedt in the lead roles.
KFD also works closely together with other partners, including Dutch distributors Dutch FilmWorks (DFW) and Splendid Films. As part of this collaboration, KFD films releases titles from their slate in Belgium and Luxembourg. 2016’s heavy hitters included DIRTY GRANDPA with Robert DeNiro and Zac Efron, BAD MOMS with Christina Applegate, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell and MECHANIC: RESURRECTION, featuring Jason Statham.
2018 is already lining up to be a great movie year for KFD as well, with titles such as PATSER, the new movie by directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, ANGEL HAS FALLEN (a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen) with Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, ESCOBAR with Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem and PAPILLON, the remake of the eponymous 1973 movie.
