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
With the record number of 30,600 visitors in 2018, Luxembourg City Film Festival has firmly established itself as the nation’s leading cinema event. Since its inception in 2011 it is one of Europe’s festivals with the most spectacular growth.
Supported by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Luxembourg, it is the country’s official Film Festival. With this in mind, it is committed to presenting high-quality, exclusive content of undeniable artistic value. Over the course of eleven days, Luxembourg City Film Festival features a vast panorama of contemporary fiction and documentary films both international and from Luxembourg, special screenings, and an extensive Young Audiences programme in the three partner cinema complexes (Ciné Utopia, Kinepolis Kirchberg, and the Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg). Besides these 192 cinema screenings (in 2018), the festival also dares to venture beyond film theatres, hosting events, workshops, exhibitions and concerts in many of the capital’s cultural institutions. Since 2017, the Festival hosts an innovative Virtual Reality Pavilion opening up this emerging new form of cinematic expression to a broad audience.
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 film education and education in the visual image, the Festival offers an exciting Young Audiences programme, trying to appeal to the imagination, intelligence and curiosity of children and adolescents.
An experience not to be missed!
