Pairing an immaculate, ankle-length, cream-coloured gown with bejewelled earrings and glitzy clutch bag, the country’s next Grand Duchess left her mark on the glamorous event, which was hosted at the Grand Théâtre Lumière.
On Thursday, she along with Prince Guillaume, culture minister Xavier Bettel and Film Fund Director Guy Daleiden, visited the Luxembourg pavilion where they met with people from the country’s audiovisual sector, including French actress Julie Gayet. The latter chose the Luxembourg pavilion to launch the "Prix Virtelio", an international prize run in partnership with the Luxembourg Film Fund which will award €150,000 for a virtual reality screen play that would be made as a Luxembourg co-production.
Thursday’s visit concluded with a reception to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the Luxembourg pavilion, which provides a meeting place for professionals in the sector.
Luxembourg produces or co-produces around 20 feature films per year, however, this year marks the first time in many years that no Luxembourg productions have been nominated for the Cannes Festival selection.
