Who is Jan Verheyen?
With 18 successful feature films on his C.V., Jan is a giant in the Flemish world of film-making. As a presenter and media figure, he has worked for just about every Flemish broadcaster. He organises De Nacht van de Wansmaak (the night of bad taste), a homage to failed, far-fetched and jaw-dropping B to Z films. He has written books on films and travel, and is now working on a book about exploitation films in the wild seventies.
If you want to be initiated into the wonderful world of films, or hear an artist's unique perspective on politics and the cultural elite, then Jan is the man you are looking for. Quick-witted, very humorous and occasionally controversial - Jan Verheyen ticks all the boxes.
