A few weeks back, the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic forced the organisers of the biggest film festival in the Grand Duchy to halt activities eight days after the event opening. Boasting highlights such as the thirtieth anniversary of the Film Fund Luxembourg and a greater virtual reality presence via the new Neumünster pavilion, the abrupt cancellation of the Luxembourg City Film Festival’s 10th edition left something of a bitter taste (read our news).

Captained by Alexis Juncosa, the organisers’ reaction was immediate: as of 31 March, the festival had already initiated a partnership with the VOD.lu platform to exclusive viewings of a selection of films at adjusted rates, thereby allowing audiences to catch up on Luxembourg (co-)productions which they didn’t get the chance to see. In this sense, LuxFilmFest Home Edition is offering a second chance to Norie [+lee también:

, a wonderful documentary on grief and the memory of lost loved ones, directed by Yuki Kawamura, as well as River Tales by Julie Schroell, a beautiful, precious and essential account of a youth spent in Nicaragua on the banks of the San Juan River. The virtual Q&A sessions organised immediately after these two digital screenings alone drew in an impressive 4,500 participants via Facebook.

They’re encouraging results, which inspired the festival’s artistic committee to launch a second wave of online programming, once again in association with the Film Fund Luxembourg, d’Filmakademie and VOD.lu. Far more substantial than the initial offering, this “Phase 2” selection, which is accessible until 18 June, has been organised around the themes explored by stand-out titles from previous editions of the festival.

As an added bonus for viewers, some of these feature films will be available free of charge at weekends. Stephan Schech’s animation Moon Man [+lee también:

It can be found within the platform’s Young Audiences section, alongside Ioanis Nuguet’s Spartacus & Cassandra [+lee también:
