The tenth edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival (LuxFilmFest) will take place from 5 to 15 March 2020.
Following the success of the LuxFilmFest 2019, preparations have already begun for next year's symbolic tenth edition.
In the meantime, the next couple of LuxFilmFest events happening in the coming weeks are the Young Audience Film Day on Sunday 5 May 2019, as well as several school screenings during the week of 13-19 May.
The eighth Young Audience Film Day, organised by the European Film Academy (EFA), in partnership with the Luxembourg City Film Festival, will bring together a record 55 cities from 34 countries. Juries of young Europeans will watch the nominated films "Fight Girl/Vechtmeisje", "Los Bando" and "Old Boys", all three of which will then be available as Video-on-Demand for the general public. The three screenings will be available for the Luxembourg public to watch free of charge at the Cinémathèque. Registrations for the Luxembourg jury are now open for all young people between 12 and 14 years old at email@example.com.
Also in May 2019, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and SCRIPT, the Luxembourg City Film Festival is organising several school screenings as part of its Non-Festival school programme. This follows its mission to promote media literacy of students, for classes of Luxembourgish secondary schools. The screenings will be followed by discussions lead by film experts and professionals.
