This website features details of Film Festivals and Film Seasons as organised by G-Media sarl, with Geoff Thompson the festival director on each occasion. These include the British & Irish Film Season (BIFS, annually in the autumn since 2010), the Nordic Film Festival (NFF, from 2014) and other one-off mini-festivals such as the St Patrick’s Film Festival (in 2013).
The British & Irish Film Season started in Luxembourg in 2010 to celebrate the rich array and diversification of film-making across the British Isles (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man), primarily from independent film production companies. The event is going from strength to strength, with more films included in 2013 to satisfy the demand of the cinema-going public.
Following on this success, G-Media sarl decided to extend the geographic scope of festival concept by also focusing on the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland).
The seasons/festivals only feature films that have not been screened in Luxembourg before and the organisers try to include films from all countries/regions as well as covering many genres in the process. Most films are screened just once, with the BIFS sometimes including a second screening of some films.
