The 6th edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival kicked off last Thursday at Utopolis.

Through March 6, all cinemaphiles will delight their passion with a selection of films, documentaries and short movies selected from whole Europe.

I really cherish this opportunity to screen european cinema productions, as they are often less displayed compared to the gigantic american counterpart.

The president of the International Jury for the 6th edition of the Luxembourg City Film Festival has been announced as Wang Xiaoshuai, Chinese film director and screenwriter.  

This year the main innovation introduced in the Film Festival is the Magic Mirrors headquarters, installed on the Place de la Constitution, it is a wooden tent structure which serves as a meeting point for the general public to learn more about the screenings but will also boast its own set of events throughout the festival.

It will also house a 360-degree film viewing installation, the Full Virtual Reality Corner The space will offer a virtual reality corner.

The 65 films will be screened at a number of locations, including the Cinémathèque, Ciné Utopia, Utopolis, the Magic Mirrors headquarters and Cercle Cité.
