The Luxembourg Film Festival 2024 edition will take place from 29 February – 10 March 2024. In addition to their full programme, available here ( ), we would like to draw your attention to several exciting British productions and co-productions, featuring Saoirse Ronan, Jodie Comer and Benedict Cumberbatch.

HOARD by Luna Carmoon, a visionary debut feature film set in 1980s London, Maria and her mother spend evenings on the street in search of trash, collecting tinfoil, chalk, and food scraps to add to the piles of other found treasures crowding their home. Their lives are messy yet magical, but an accident soon separates the two. Flash forward to 1994: Maria is now an energetic and awkward teenager under the care of a kindly foster mother when Michael, himself a former foster child, comes to visit. Their friendship quickly descends into visceral madness.

 THE OUTRUN, the festivals opening film, with Saoirse Ronan and by director Nora Fingscheidt. Rona, 30 years old and just out of rehab, returns to the wilds of Scotland’s Orkney Islands after more than a decade of dissolute life in London.

FEMME, a thriller by Sam H. Freeman and Ping NG Chong. By night, Jules transforms herself into a drag queen and sets London’s stages alight. One night, a group of homophobic thugs attack him after a show. Jules went into hiding and didn’t dare leave his house until three months later.

HOME INVASION by Graeme Arnfield. This nightmarish essay film on the history of the doorbell, tracing its invention and constant reinventions through 19th century labour struggles, the nascent years of narrative cinema, and contemporary surveillance cultures.

THE END WE START FROM, with Jodie Comer and Benedict Cumberbatch by Mahalia Belo. When an environmental crisis submerges London in flood waters, a young family is torn apart in the chaos..

FIREBRAND by Karim Aïnouz will also be presented during the Festival. This film with Alicia Vikander and Jude Law is set in blood-soaked Tudor England, Katherine Parr, the sixth and last wife of King Henry VIII, is named Regent while tyrant Henry is fighting overseas. Katherine has done everything she can to push for a new future based on her radical Protestant beliefs.

LET THE CANARY SING, a musical documentary by Alison Ellwood with Cyndi Lauper. Alongside lively archival footage and interviews, this portrait traces the meteoric rise of Cyndi Lauper. It highlights the profound impact this unique artist has had on several generations through her music, her ever-evolving punk style, her unwavering feminism and her activism.
