The 2015 Luxembourg Film Festival continues all this week; on Monday evening Utopolis-Kirchberg screened ten short films showcasing the best of new and young film-making talent in the Grand Duchy.

While some films received funding from traditional sources, including the Luxembourg Film Fund for instance, others relied on crowd-funding for part or all of their finance. The nine short films screened included the following:

A QUOI BON, directed by Thierry Faber (FR, sub-titles EN) 18′ – a fascinating drama about a man with a secret who tries to get letters to/from his daughter whom he has not seen for years

THE CLEAN UP, directed by Jesse Allen (EN) 15′ – a black comedy about two office cleaners who come across a body and decide to make it not look like suicide

JAVOTTE, directed by Sarah Hirtt (FR) 15′ – 2 middle-aged step-sisters are forced to talk when accidentally locked in a cellar during the wedding of their father

LE MIROIR DES APPARENCES, directed by Serge Wolfsperger FR, sub-titles EN) 22′ – an artistic drama about a dancer, filmed at Kinneksbond in Mamer

WURST, directed by Carlo Vogele (no speech) 6′ – a comic animation film featuring characters of sausages, chicken thighs, rashers, etc., on a beach

ROXY, directed by Fabien Colas (DE/LU, sub-titles EN) 17′ – a drama involving a young man who lands in a bar, but why? By coincidence or on purpose?

MORGUE, directed by Laurent Prim (LU, sub-titles EN) 14′ – a drama about a sepated couple who meet at the morgue to identify the body of their daughter, starring Jules Werner

THE LIGHT EATER, directed by Sean McCormack (EN) 18′ – an animated film telling the story of a boy terrified of going to school on the first day

OVERRIDE, directed by Juan Aguilar (EN) 19′ – an interesting docudrama based on a real story which initially seems to be going in one direction before changign course to tell a transgender story
