European Film Academy Young Audience Award 2019
In 2019, Luxembourg City Film Festival is once again taking part in the YOUNG AUDIENCE FILM DAY organised by the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY across 55 cities in 34 countries to choose the best European youth film of the year. Each year, the EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD presents three European films to children aged 12 to 14 across Europe. In every participating city the young jurors are going to watch and review the three nominated films during the so-called YOUNG AUDIENCE FILM DAY (the whole day on 5th May 2019) and, after some deliberation, will select their winner at the end of the day. Then, in a truly European vote, the speakers of the jury will transmit their national results via video conference call. The ceremony will be broadcast live on the website www.yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu.
All of the screenings of the three nominated films will be open to the public free of charge on 5th May 2019 at the Cinémathèque!
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF COMMEMORATION 2019
The International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2019
In its resolution on the 26th October 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated the 27th January as International Holocaust Remembrance Day in all of its member nations. In Luxembourg, the Day is held each year on or around the 27th January.
The aim of the Day of Commemoration is to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and to inform young people about the dangers of intolerance, racial hatred and ignorance. The offered activities are supposed to raise young students’ awareness for often subconscious prejudices, stereotypes and violence towards others, and to abolish them. They are motivated to initiate and support steps towards social cohesion, and to actively participate in the building of a better and fairer world.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2019 is aimed at teachers and students of the “enseignement secondaire".
Marking the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda, this year’s Remembrance Day will commemorate the Rwandans who were killed over the course of 100 days in 1994.
