About Us

With over 29,100 visitors in 2019 and a 21% increase of cinema audience members, the Luxembourg City Film Festival has firmly established itself as the nation’s leading cinema event and is one of Europe’s festivals with the most spectacular growth.

Supported by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Luxembourg, Luxembourg City Film Festival is the country’s official film festival. With this in mind, it is committed to presenting high-quality, exclusive content of undeniable artistic value, featuring a vast panorama of international contemporary fiction and documentary films, special screenings, Luxembourgish productions and a young audiences programme.

Beyond the 208 screenings in the three partner cinema complexes (Ciné Utopia, Kinepolis Kirchberg, and the Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg), the Festival welcomed 327 international guests and professional visitors in 2019 and dares to venture beyond film theatres, hosting special evening eventsfree workshopsexhibitions and concerts in many of the capital’s cultural institutions. In the nine years since its inception, the Festival didn't just earn the trust of these national institutions, but hosted several events in collaboration with international partners such as the United Nations, diplomatic representations, the European Film Academy, the World Bank as well as other Festivals.

In 2012 the Luxembourg City Film Festival became competitive with awards for the best international fiction film (10,000 €), best documentary (5,000 €) and best young audience film (2,000 €).

From 5th - 15th March 2020, the Festival will return for its 10th edition. Visitors can expect 11 days centered on cinema inside and outside the theatres in the city centre of Luxembourg.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!
