The British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg (BIFFL) was started in 2010 and celebrates its 12th edition in 2021. It celebrates primarily independent film from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, across various genres, with 15-20 feature films screened during each festival, usually held in September. We also screen films in March (St Patrick’s Screenings) and, in 2019, also held a St George’s Screening in April.

While we focus on contemporary films, we also held Vintage Screenings in 2019 which were very popular. In addition, we regularly programme Documentary Double Bills and Irish-language films, as well as Luxembourg co-productions. We also organise workshops and seminars (our 2020 event was entitled Short Films: Business or Pleasure?), and we also screen a number of short films each festival, as well as Ciné Cuisine, e.g. receptions or a whiskey tasting, and we also hold Film Quizzes.

A central part of our festival is welcoming Special Guests (actors, directors, producers, script-writers) for post-screening Q&A sessions. From time to time we welcome other guests for events outside the main festival and, in 2020, welcomed the renowned Jim Sheridan for An Evening with Jim Sheridan in a fireside chat format, in collaboration with the Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.

Please observe the festival schedule. A film will remain in your Library for 72 hours after it becomes available to watch, and for 48 hours after you begin watching.
