Soirée Crème Fraîche (c) CNA, Romain Girtgen


As part of the Luxembourg City Film Festival 2021 (4th - 14th March 2021), the Service national de la jeunesse (SNJ), in partnership with the Centre National de l'Audiovisuel (CNA), are once again organising their "Crème Fraîche" night and video contest.

Young filmmakers can choose between two categories and submit their projects:

  • The first category "Kuerzfilm / Short Film" invites participants to send in their short film of maximum 15 minutes. A jury will choose the best shorts to be screened at the Crème Fraîche event on Saturday, 6th March from 4.30 to 6.30 PM at Kinepolis Kirchberg. The winning team will be rewarded with a stay at an escape room, offered by the CNA.
  • For the second category "Trailer", filmmaking teams can submit a 90-second trailer for an imaginary film. The best trailers will be shown to the audience at the Crème Fraîche event who will then choose a winner. Over the course of 2021 the winning trailer will be turned into a film, shot in collaboration with the SNJ.

The contest is aimed at young Luxembourg cinephiles between 12 and 30 years of age. Underage participants can be supervised by and receive help from adults. Participation is free of charge.

The deadline for submissions ends on 2nd February 2021.
