L'Âge d’Or Festival seeks to reconnect with the spirit of research, audacity and adventure of a mythical manifestation of the Royal Belgian Cinematheque, the EXPRMNTL festival (1949-1975), in which the first three L'Âge d’Or prizes were awarded. Designed by Jacques Ledoux, the festival was created to support the poetic and subversive films which, echoing L'Âge d’Or, Buñuel's 1930 film that broke with both cinematic and societal conformism.

From 6 to 11 October 2016, the third edition of L'Age d'Or Festival will be held in the CINEMATEK with Joana Hadjithomas, Peter Gidal, Shai Heredia, Mark Toscano and numerous guests. This year's programme includes retrospectives of Bruce Baillie, Chick Strand and other filmmakers from the West Coast, a selecion of Asian experimental cinema and the premiere of Brecht Debackere's documentry film EXPRMNTL.
