, which was co-produced by Amour Fou Luxembourg, while Never Die Young by Pol Cruchten won Best Documentary. The latter, which follows the life of a drug addict in Luxembourg, was produced by Cruchten’s company, Red Lion.

It was the first time that the biannual national film awards in Luxembourg were not decided on by a small jury, but rather by all the people working in the film sector in Luxembourg, through the recently launched d’Filmakademie.

It was the end of a busy week for cinema in the Grand Duchy, as the Discovery Zone – Luxembourg City Film Festival came to a close over the weekend as well, with that festival’s jury awarding Mohammad Rasoulof’s Manuscripts Don’t Burn its top prize.
