Young cinema fans can find their way, not only to the local art-house cinema Utopia or big multiplexes, but also to many other cinematic events.
The Cinematheque is a must for cinephiles. Classics, musicals, film noir, splatters and zombie movies, everything has a slot in the program. Thematic nights are organized with the help of the Filmreakter Community. On their website you can get informed for everything on cinema in Luxembourg: new filming projects, casting calls, reviews for Luxembourgish films etc.
Discovery Zone is the annual international film festival of Luxembourg City. Premieres, documentaries, animation films, special guests, events and more; this is a young and fast growing festival!
CineEast is the Central and Eastern European Film Festival in Luxembourg. It’s held annually for two weeks, and you can enjoy new films from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia, the three Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) as well as Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia. Concerts, photographic exhibitions and gastronomic evenings are also taking place within the festival program.
Cinema of the South (Cinema du Sud) is a socially engaged film festival. It is “organized by a consortium of NGOs to raise public awareness to strong themes related to development through film, a medium accessible to all.” One film per week is screened for a period of two months; a debate with experts in the end of the screening gives you an insight on the topic.
Ciné Club Hellénique or Greek Cinema Club is a very active film club over the last decade. Monthly screenings, and occasional special guests who present their film and take audience questions in the end of the film, can secure you with your monthly dose of the emerging Greek cinema. All films are screened in the original language with English or French subtitles.
If, on the other hand, you feel like curving your path in the entertainment business, a youth video festival can give you some hints of the process: Creme Fraiche will give you a chance to showcase your up to 60 minutes clip on a real cinema screen and let your audience decide on the top three. Or, if you're into screen-writing, you could send your script for a short film and, if you are the winner, see your scenario produced by a professional crew! What are you waiting for? Check the deadlines and start drafting your ideas!
