Luxembourg City sees “Cinema as a tool for understanding the world”

With a strong belief in “Cinema as a tool for understanding the world” the Luxembourg City Film Festival has a mission to provide keys to current and future filmgoers, to make them aware of social issues that mark our era in order to make them not only observers but also actors.



The selection of films for young audiences, one of the main pillars of the Festival’s cinematographic programming, aims to train future film lovers. The objective has always been to offer a festival experience to young audiences, families and schools. That is to say, to offer – beyond the cinematographic experience – the added value (previews, new films, introductions and discussions, meetings with directors) of a screening programmed during a festival.

The works chosen to develop this image education programme represent cinema from around the world in a diversity of styles. They all deal with current themes that allow for an in-depth pedagogical approach. Check the festival’s selection of films and events.
