“Cinema is doing well in Luxembourg”

The essential: The Lëtzebuerger Filmpräis is back on Friday evening.

Guy Daleiden (director of the Film Fund): Yes, we are happy to be able to do our job. The cancellation last year delayed us by a year, and some films would have liked to receive a critical reception. We are also happy to be able to see each other and bring together the sector, which has not been found since LuxFilmFest. The Lëtzebuerger Filmpräis is important in terms of awards, but also of film promotion in Luxembourg. This year, the event will be broadcast for the first time in streaming on the website of RTL.

There are new things this year. Why a two-round vote?

There were too many projects, with all the films released in the last three years. Which means the sector is doing well. It would make more sense than ‘De Superjhemp Retörns’, released at the end of 2018, to be in competition last year, but we couldn’t leave it out.

Two new awards will also be inaugurated.

Yes, which promises a longer ceremony. Regarding the performance award, there were discussions around the issue of genre, but we never had separate awards.

Are “Capitani”, “An Zéro” or even “Sawah” the favorites this year?

I cannot comment on that. There are favorites from the audience. Since the first edition in 2003, there has been a real evolution in the quality of the works. There are more films made by Luxembourg filmmakers. This demonstrates the vitality of the sector.
