Luxembourg – Filmreakter

April 30, 2013

filmreakter logoFilmreakter was founded in 2002 as a non-lucrative collective of young Luxembourgish filmmakers. As the only association of its kind in the country, it quickly established itself as the representative for the local underground scene.

Due to the absence of a clearly defined goal or field of operation the association can be used and redefined according to the needs of the filmmaking scene in Luxembourg, a scene still new and uncertain in it’s direction. The
 association has thus been seen organizing small festivals such as the 
regular Open Screen event showcasing the latest in Luxembourgish
 underground filmmaking, co-producing short as well as feature lenght
 low-budget films and programming 2007′s Sunset Cinema project. It has further helped setting up a dialogue between young filmmakers and the national film fund. 2007 marked the association’s first year of participation in the national film prize with two nominated productions, one of which ended up winning the prize for best shortfilm – Jeff Desom’s Plotspoiler. In 2011 the association partnered with the Luxembourg Cinémathèque to create Cinélunatique, a weekly presentation of vintage exploitation cinema that ran until summer 2014. Furthermore we have been collaborating with the International Film Festival Luxembourg since 2009, curating special screenings and helping to bring NISI MASA’s European Short Pitch project to Luxembourg in 2012 and 2013. Since 2011 the association is the Luxembourg representative of NISI MASA – European Network of Young Cinema.
