Events and workshops
In 2021, Luxembourg City Film Festival is once again taking part in the YOUNG AUDIENCE FILM DAY organised by the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY across 38 countries to choose the best European youth film of the year. In 2021, for the second consecutive year, the EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD will be held completely online in a virtual format.
Each year, the EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD presents three European films to children aged 12 to 14 across Europe. In every participating country, from 21st to 24th April, the young jurors are going to watch and review the three nominated films through the EFA's online platform on the EFA Young Audience Award's website. The following day, on Sunday, 25th April, after a video deliberation with film experts and members of the LuxFilmFest team, they will select their winner and transmit their national results in a truly European vote to the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY in Erfurt, Germany. The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on the website www.yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021
International Holocaust Remembrance Day
On November 1st, 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27th, the day the Auschwitz extermination camp was liberated in 1945, as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Each year, on or around January 27th, Luxembourg is joining in the international remembrance of the victims of the Shoah and other genocides.
The Day of Commemoration’s explicit aim is to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and to warn young people of the dangers of intolerance, racial and religious hatred and ignorance of genocides. The activities offered are intended to raise young students’ awareness of often subconscious prejudices and stereotypes, and to encourage them to get actively involved in working towards stronger social cohesion and building a better and fairer world.
On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, film screenings are held in several regional cinemas across Luxembourg. They are aimed at students and teachers of Luxembourgish secondary schools, as well as the general public.
