. The series is taken up by director Jan Verheyen, to whom we owe a number of Flemish cinema success stories. FC De Kampionen 2 is, as its name indicates, the second part of the film adaptation of a very popular Flemish TV series, broadcast for over 20 years. The first part attracted over 720,000 viewers.

). Kebab Royal is a captivating and ambitious project, a fictional time period in which a somewhat lacklustre Belgian king, Nicolas 1st, sees his fate take a different turn when during an official visit to Turkey, Flanders declares its independence. While a sun storm hits earth and cuts off all means of communication, the king embarks on a Balkan odyssey in order to go save his people. The film is produced by Bo Films, the Belgian directors' company and Unlimited for France.

The other two major Belgian works to receive financing are My First Highway [+see also:

In return for the €1,430,000 invested by Screen Flanders, these seven projects will have to account for expenses in the Flemish Region for a total amount of 6.9 million euro. The funding allocated to each project varies from €50,000 to €400,000. For the year 2015 two sessions have been confirmed to date with a total support budget of 3.5 million euro. The first session will close today.
