This website features details of Film Festivals / Seasons organised by G-Media sarl, with Geoff Thompson the festival director on each occasion. These include the The British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg (BIFFL, from 2010), the Nordic Film Festival (NFF, from 2014) and other mini-festivals such as the St Patrick’s Film Festival (in 2013, 2017, 2018 & 2021) and special screenings.

The British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg started in 2010 (as the British & Irish Film Season; rebranded in 2019) and celebrates the rich array and diversification of film-making across the British Isles (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland), 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. From 2021, the festivals have also included online screenings.
