This year, the British & Irish Film Season reaches its 10th anniversary. With this milestone, it has rebranded as the British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg and has a new logo.

This year’s festival takes place from Friday 13 to Saturday 21 September 2019 at the Cinémathèque, Ciné Utopia and Kinepolis-Kirchberg. As in previous years, this 10th anniversary festival will have actors, directors, producers and script-writers over for post-screening Q&As where audiences can ask questions and discover the stories behind the making of the films.
