In more than a decade, Luxembourg City Film Festival has become Luxembourg’s leading cinema event, with more than 30k visitors since 2018. Supported jointly by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Luxembourg, it is the official national event. With this in mind, it is committed to presenting high-quality, 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, Ciné Utopia and Utopolis) and many of the capital’s cultural institutions.
Now with its own competition, founded in 2012, for the best in international cinema (with a €10,000 prize for the winner), the Luxembourg City Film Festival also offers a high-quality selection of documentaries (with a €5,000 prize), national productions and films for young audiences (with a €2,000 prize). Since 2023 the “2030 Award by Luxembourg Aid & Development” is given to a film that illustrates the challenges and factors that are intrinsic to development and the initiatives made to counter these issues, or to a director with ties to the partner countries of the Luxembourg Cooperation (7 500€).
Running from March the 2nd to 12th March, the 2023 festival will include again two weekends, providing easier access to several special screenings, an exhibition and the events organised at the festival’s headquarters. Once again, it will welcome audiences from the Greater Region and a rich professional scene, with about twenty production companies and more than 1000 film professionals working in Luxembourg. Each years, requests for over 300 press and professional accreditations comes from more than 30 countries.
