The 2030 Award by Luxembourg Aid & Development

In 2022, the Luxembourg Cooperation will present for the very first time the "2030 Award" at the Luxembourg City Film Festival.

The title refers to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a call for all nations to form a global partnership to promote a more just and sustainable future for all by 2030. Luxembourg places particular emphasis on the first 6 SDGs: the fight against poverty, the elimination of hunger in the world, access to health care and education, gender equality and clean water. Many of the partner countries supported by the Luxembourg Cooperation are located in the Sahel, a region threatened by climate change and security challenges.

With this award, the Luxembourg Cooperation aims to further explore the cultural dimension of development, by supporting cultural creation in its partner countries, and by offering visibility not only to the challenges but also to the success stories of developmental support and action. Film and cinema can amplify the voices of those who are usually less represented. According to UNESCO, culture is also "a catalyst and a vehicle for the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.”

It is therefore in this perspective that the "2030 Award by Luxembourg Aid & Development" will be given to a film that illustrates the challenges previously mentioned, the 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. The prize will be of 7 500€.

Here are the films competing for the award:

The Jury this year will be composed of Armand Back, Véronique Faber et Nora Koenig.
