Movie-going distribution and exhibition in German-occupied Belgium

I am investigating (1) the German ‘reorganisation’ of the Belgian film sector in World War II, (2) its effects on film distribution, film exhibition, movie-going, film reception, film production… I have been working/publishing on this subject since 2003, initially as a post-doctoral researcher and now (as associate professor) as a long-term project.
I am, simultaneously, conducting research on German film policy vis-à-vis Europe (occupied states, ‘befriended nations’, neutral states) in World War II.
