Each year, BNP Paribas Fortis partners with the Magritte du Cinéma (francophone Belgian Film prize), and with the Ensors (Dutch Belgian film prize). Like the French Césars and the American Oscars, these coveted awards recognize the most acclaimed works of the Belgian film industry.
Following the votes of 700 professionals from the Belgian film industry, the Magritte du Cinéma award the best French-language films produced by Belgian filmmakers, as well as Belgian actors, French speaking or Dutch, that having acted in these films. These awards are given in association with the Academie André Delvaux and Be TV.
The Ensors are the Flemish equivalent of the Magritte du Cinéma. Awarded every year in September during the Oostende Film Festival. Since 2014, BNP Paribas Fortis is not only the main sponsor of the award ceremony but also main partner to the festival itself.
