Welcome to the 2018 LiFF Lucerne Int'l Film Festival
This will be an exciting new edition of the LiFF Lucerne Int’l Film Festival.
With an official world premiere of a large studio blockbuster (title to be announced) and a live red-carpet broadcasting throughout the world (via internet) the next gen LiFF edition will be a blast.
Due to lack of sponsors for the 2017 LiFF the organizers decided to pause until 2018. And the association running the festival is currently regrouping to work on a new launch of the LiFF Lucerne Int'l Film Festival. Stay tuned for new announcements from a new group of organizers.
This is what you can expect of the new re-launched festival:
There will be a total of three red-carpet events at this years LiFF, which hopefully will be hosted by long-term host Gilles Tschudi. And you can expect quit a few surprise guest stars appearing at the coming LiFF. For the first time, the LiFF will be a true red-carpet events visible around the world and available on major broadcasting stations including YouTube Live and Facebook Live. A new National Swiss television broadcaster will air the complete red-carpet event live.

This night is for the fans of the blockbuster released world premiere movie. The fan premiere is already sold out and a tribute to the fans. It will be a duplicate of the Saturday Night World Premiere, this time just focusing on the fans attending. A chance to meet your idols and all the stars of the film up close and personal.
During the festival you can enjoy the beauty of the Lake of Lucerne and the City.
The "i" in LiFF not only stands for "international", but also for "independent". International are the films shown at the festival and also the filmmakers that submitted their work from all over the world. Independent and free spirited are the subjects and contents of their films. Even low budget movies with strong stories get a chance to show their films at our festival. Our program is unique and most of the films cannot be seen in the mainstream theaters. Quality and content are of high importance - heartfelt and moving stories are the soul of the festival.
