Luxembourg’s VoD.lu platform launches cinema@home
System Crasher by Nora Fingscheidt

Since its founding in 2016, Luxembourg’s VoD.lu platform has striven to offer local audiences a wide catalogue of films, focusing especially on domestic and European productions. At a time when cinemas are being forced to shut down owing to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, VoD.lu has announced a new initiative called cinema@home.

cinema@home is the result of close co-operation with a number of distributors and producers, and aims “to exceptionally offer online the films that were (and were going to be) in cinemas”, as stated on the platform’s official website.
