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 & 2017).
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.
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.
