About Avila

Avila is a Belgian film distributor that releases films in cinemas and makes them available online through video on demand. 

The online video platform offers both contemporary and classic documentary and fiction films which the public can endlessly (re)discover. The platform was founded by filmmakers and takes off with a selection of Belgian films. 

The catalogue of the online platform explicitly avoids an overload in which a film threatens to drown and disappear, presenting a selection based on editorial choices. Every one of the films offered by Avila transcends the ephemeral and continues to resound aesthetically, technically, politically or historically.
