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 The British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg (BIFFL) – rebranded from 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 & 2018).

The British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg started in 2010 (as the British & Irish Film Season) 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. In 2019, the British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg (BIFFL) celebrated its 10th anniversary and organised a series of events throughout the year, including Special Screenings, special events with both the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) and the Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (ILCC), as well as a reception hosted by the British Embassy in Luxembourg.

Following on this initial 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 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 BIFFL sometimes including a second screening of some films.
