Every year Ukrainian films take part in International movie festival CinEast. In 2018, in the frames of CinEast festival were screened next movies: “Donbas” by Serhii Loznytsia, “Volcano” by Roman Bondarchuk, “When the Trees Fall” by Marysia Nikitiuk.

Presence of Ukrainian culture in Luxembourg also provided by Ukrainian community in Luxembourg.

Ukrainians of Luxembourg had created two organizations –  the Union of Ukrainian Women in Luxembourg “Ukraїnka” and the Association “LUkraine”.

Ukrainains of Luxembourg have held a number of events aimed to promote Ukrainian history and culture, to celebrate the important dates for Ukraine, as well as to present their support to Ukraine: flashmob for the Day of the Flag, Vyshyvanka Day, campaign for Ukrainian political prisoners that are illegally kept by Russia.

On March 19, 2019, with the help of NGO “LUkraine” and with the participation of Luxembourg’s officials, public and international diplomats, “Crimea: as it was” movie screening was held.

A lot of effort was put by the Association “LUkraine” into work for Luxembourg to officially recognize Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as an act of genocide against Ukrainian people, and held a number of events to honour the memory of victims of Holodomor 1932-1933.

Thanks to the effort of the Association “LUkraine”, during the annual International fair of nations in Luxembourg, a Ukrainian stand is presented.

From December 2019, the Association “LUkraine” started a new project aimed to present Ukrainian films to the Luxembourg’s audience. On 15 December 2019, in the frame of this project, an animated film “Foxter & Max” was shown.

Every year Woman Association “Ukraїnka” holds events to honour the memory of military and political personalities that were fighting for the Independence of our country and that are buried on the territory of Luxembourg, such as Osyp Tverdovskyi (participated in the battle of Kruty, head of the OUN in Luxembourg) and Andrii Melnyk (colonel of the UNR army, political activist).

Both Ukrainian organizations participate in volunteering, sending considerable amounts of helps to medical establishments, orphanages, and volunteer organizations.
