The Luxembourg City Film Festival will be held in cinemas across the capital from 2 to 12 March. The 2023 edition will showcase films that focus on the art of making movies, with a rich and varied programme, in particular for young audiences. The project “Cinema as a tool for understanding the world” lets children, teenagers and families discover local and international productions, and provides them with the keys for a better understanding through screenings, but also interactive sessions, discussions and previews.
Another highlight in March is the Wiener Ball. Held at the Cercle Cité, this ball is one of the pinnacles of the Wien in Luxemburg cultural festival. Conceived by the Austrian Embassy and the City of Luxembourg, Wien in Luxemburg will include a series of events, from cultural to culinary gatherings, all throughout the year in the capital and with the aim of strengthening ties between Luxembourg and Vienna.
As Luxembourg City mayor and alderwoman for cultural affairs, I am delighted that our city will be hosting these two projects. They not only solidify Luxembourg City’s position as a powerful cultural force, they also offer programmes likely to interest the diverse audiences that call our multicultural capital home.
In addition to these cultural delights, I would also like to draw your attention to one of the pillars of every municipality, namely the Office social (Social Welfare Office). In charge of assisting beneficiaries of the social inclusion income (Revis) since 2019, the Office social has doubled its staff and has moved to new offices at 90A, Rue de Strasbourg. City took the occasion to meet with its different units to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the work of this essential institution.
With many other topics waiting to be discovered in this edition, I wish you a happy reading!
