The feature-length animation film “Panique au village“, directed by Vincent Patar and Stephane Aubier, and co-produced with Melusine Productions (Stephan Roelants) is to be shown in the official “Midnight Sessions” (out of competition) selection at the 62nd edition of the Cannes film Festival which runs from 13 – 24 May 2009. In addition, the film “Ne te retourne pas” (Do not return), directed by Marina de Van and produced by Samsa Film (Jani Thiltges) is also included in the official “Midnight Sessions” selection. 

Luxembourg’s Minister for Communications, Jean-Louis Schiltz, stated that these selections show that the film industry knows that Luxembourgers make films whose quality is recognized internationally. The Luxembourg Film Fund will have a stand at the festival, in the Global Village, for the 7th time this year. This will serve as a work platform and meeting place for cinema professionals and the press, under the Luxembourg flag. The Luxembourg Film Fund, for the fourth time, is sponsoring young Luxembourgish directors and screenwriters to enable them to participate in the Film Market (Jacques Molitor, Ben Andrews and Frédéric Zeimet).
