The Grand Duchy’s film industry comes under the spotlight in Ireland this week as seven Luxembourg co-productions are to be screened as part of a film festival.

The Galway Film Festival, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary, brings to the fore the special cinematic relationship between the Grand Duchy and the Green Isle with the international premiere of Luxembourg-Irish film Love Eternal.

At the same time there will be screenings of Beryl Koltz’s comedy “Hot, Hot, Hot”, thriller “Doudege Wénkel”, Belgian-French and Luxembourgish film “J’enrage de son absence”, animations “Ernest & Célestine”, “The Congress” and documentary “Naked Opera”.

To reinforce the Luxembourg touch, the national audiovisual fund will hold a number of cultural activities, including a concert from André Mergenthaler and Sascha Ley & Nataša Gehl at some of the screenings.

During the festival, which runs from July 9 to 14, a meeting was held featuring James Hickey from the Irish Film Board and Luxembourg’s Film Fund Director Guy Daleiden to help encourage further collaborative works between Luxembourg and Ireland.

Mr Daleiden said: “I’m delighted with the excellent relationship that Luxembourg has with Ireland in the field of audiovisual production. Our two film industries have many things in common and our collaboration is particularly friendly. Thus, the audiovisual co-production agreement signed in 2011 between the two countries is now bearing fruit.”
