British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg 2022 will take place from 16-24 September 2022, in an in-cinema format.
The film festival provides a unique opportunity for viewers to experience a wide selection of new films from Britain and Ireland. The 9-day event will include 13 feature-length films from a cross-section of genres and representing mainly independent cinema, as well as a couple of short films. In addition, there are three special events being held midweek, including two seminars plus a special “Solidarity with Refugees” event.
Of perhaps special interest to Comhaltas members and supporters are the following documentaries:
Continuing Traditions by Dónal Ó Céilleachair, about blending Indian classical music and Irish traditional music (Saturday 17 September, 19.00 @ Ciné Utopia, followed by a reception with music from Comhaltas musicians);
Steps of Freedom, The Story of Irish Dance (IE, 80 mins) by Ruán Magan, about how Irish dance developed over centuries (Friday 23 September, 18:30 @ Cinèmathèque);
