Luxembourg City, the capital of the only Grand Duchy in the world, will surprise you with its myriad delights. Rarely will you find a country in Europe where so many cultures, mentalities and languages act in accordance and perfect harmony. With its stunning blend of theatre and museums, UNESCO World Heritage sites and architectural jewels, the city of Luxembourg is one of the most unique experiments in harmonious diversity and one of Europe's most scenic capitals, thanks largely to its unusual setting, draped across the deep gorges of the Alzette and Pétrusse rivers. It's full of weird spaces, tunnels, and surprising nooks to explore.
Luxembourg City Film Festival
In just six years, Luxembourg City Film Festival has become Luxembourg’s leading cinema event. With nearly 22,000 visitors in 2016 and an increase of over 20% in cinema audiences compared with 2015, it is one of the European festivals that has achieved the most spectacular growth. Supported jointly by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Luxembourg, it is the country’s official Film Festival. It is committed to presenting high-quality and exclusive content. Several continental and world premières punctuate ten days of over a hundred screenings, events and workshops in the three partner cinema complexes Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg and Ciné Utopia, Utopolis Kirchberg – part of Kinepolis Group as well as the Festival’s Headquarters (Magic Mirrors tent) and many of the capital’s cultural institutions.
In addition to its main programme the Luxembourg City Film Festival tries to measure up to the children, their parents, their teachers and the professionals. In its aspiration for image education, the festival offers an exciting Young Audiences programme, trying to appeal to the imagination, intelligence and curiosity of the children.
An experience not to be missed!
