Every year for the past ten years the event has continued to grow, attracting increasingly large audiences. In 2016, no fewer than 20,000 people attended the Luxembourg Film Festival.
Backed by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Luxembourg, the event proposes films for all ages, not forgetting youngsters, who have their own programming. This year there are already 16 films for young audiences on the programme.
Note that the film Denial, by Mick Jackson and David Hare, will start the ball rolling, while Song to Song, by Terrence Malick, will be the final film of the event, for its international premiere.
