(CS) First details of this year’s Discovery Zone Luxembourg City Film Festival have emerged, promising a diverse programme for the festival running from February 28 to March 8.

For the third edition, Discovery Zone hopes to build on last year’s success, which saw around 11,000 people flocking to the cinema to see the latest discoveries of the film industry.

With a mix of features, documentaries and short films, together with a special programme for children and teenagers, as well as an exhibition, Q&As, and meet and greets with industry professionals, the week of silver screen delights was a highlight of the cinephile calendar in 2012.

 

Documentary Chasing Ice will be screened for young audiences

 

The 2013 edition looks to continue in the same vein, with the first details announced this week.

The Cercle Cité Ratskeller will once again be the festival HQ, hosting an exhibition, talks and workshops, as well as being the port of call for anyone looking for information on the festival programme.

Two prizes in 2013

More events will take place outside the cinema this year, with special screenings and performances at the Casino Luxembourg in Rue Notre Dame, the Mudam, the Abbaye de Neumünster and the Carré Rotondes.

A 20 euro pass is also available this year, granting access to all screenings.

This year’s festival will also see not one but two prizes awarded to the films in competition. The “Grand Prix” sponsored by Orange will be selected by a professional jury from the Luxembourg and international film industry.

For the second year running a critics’ prize, sponsored by BGL BNP Paribas, will be awarded by members of the Luxembourg press.

English-language youth offer

The youth programme of the festival will continue to play an important role in the 2013 edition. A special set of short film screenings will give children aged three and upwards the chance to discover the cinema.

The Crazy Cinematographe for Kids will also make a return alongside several Avant-Premières and contemporary international films aimed at young audiences. Several films of the selection are in English, such as documentaries Chasing Ice and Queen of Versailles or the animation short film selection Extraordinary Tales.

Workshops to learn more about writing, filming and editing are also scheduled, with registrations already open for an English-language script-writing workshop.

More details on the festival programme will be revealed at a press conference at the beginning of February. For more information and to see the youth programme visit discoveryzone.lu
