The big reveal…our 2019 visual

Our visual for Luxembourg City Film Festival 2019 is a celebration of fun and colour.

Taken from a series by French photographer Marion Gambin which captures the vivacity of an American retirement town, Sun City, Arizona, the image features a local dancing group, the “Rhythm Tappers”, playfully dressed-up to represent countries from all over the world – an ironic nod to Luxembourg City Film Festival’s international-focus.

The Sun City community are a can-do group of volunteers who give up their time free-of-charge to set up recreational activities and welfare projects for the benefit of everyone, as well as sit on boards and act as sheriffs etc. saving a huge amount of money for the city. It’s hard to imagine Sun City without these female powerhouses!

We applaud their can-do, positive attitude, and hope their ironic, colourful get-up will brighten up the dark, cold winter days leading up to the Festival which kicks off on 7 March 2019.

Marion Gambin is a French photographer, based in Paris. Focussed on documentary and portrait photography, Marion plays with fiction and reality, deconstructing her subjects’ relationships with the built environment. She is part of the collective project “France(s), Territoire Liquide”. Her work has appeared in Libération, Le Monde, Causette, Néon, and The Good Life, as well as in exhibitions across Europe and beyond.
