Princess Mathilde visits RITS
On 5 March Princess Mathilde visited the RITS, a Dutch language college for audiovisual and dramatic arts in Brussels. The students not only learn how to direct movies, there are also courses about the more technical side of the job. One of the departments the Princess visited was the animation department. She took the time to talk with students and lecturers while she was there.
The Princess is very interested in Belgian audiovisual arts. On 16 February, she and Prince Philippe attended the symposium about the Belgian film industry at the Theater St Michel, entitled “Comment filmer le réalité aujourd’hui” (or “how to film reality today”), where they met the famous brothers Dardenne, the celebrated directors of many socially engaged films.
