LuxFilmFest - Home Edition: Theme Weeks

Relive LuxFilmFest’s previous editions on VOD.lu!

Over the course of April, LuxFilmFest – Home Edition brought some of the Luxembourgish (co)productions selected for the Festival’s tenth edition to VOD.lu. Now, the online edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival is about to head into its second phase.

From 8th May to 18th June 2020, Luxembourg City Film Festival is going to bring its extensive back catalogue from previous years back to life thanks to theme weeks on VOD.lu.

Each week, the Festival’s Artistic Committee will present a curated thematic selection of films to residents of Luxembourg at preferential rates and even offer three films completely free of charge each weekend!

Every Friday, a new set of films will appear in the LuxFilmFest – Home Edition tab on VOD.lu (www.vod.lu/en/corner/home-edition), available at a special discounted price for seven days. From Friday evening, 5 PM, to Monday morning, VOD.lu will offer its users three films of the selection for free.
