Awards at the ART and TUR Festival

BCE received awards at the ART and TUR Festival in Portugal

BCE received three awards at the International Tourism Film Festival (ART&TUR) in Barcelos, Portugal, for the short film “Is it true what they say about Luxembourg?”

The film project is based on the use of Luxembourg’s prejudices to describe the real story about the country. The project presents Luxembourg through 10 short films ranging from tourism, business, finance, life, to wines, holidays, etc… Each production has its own identity with high emotion and modern style.

ART and TUR is a project promoted by APTUR (Portuguese Tourism Association), with the high patronage of the Municipality of Barcelos.

The ART and TUR Festival is member of CIFFT – International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals, a worldwide network of 12 international film festivals, which organizes every year the Festival of Festivals, in Vienna.
