Cinema – a love story
The BNP Paribas group has built strong ties with the world of European cinema, becoming a leading player in film financing: creative assistance, support for young directors and as a festival partner.
"Le Luxembourgeois" cello
Since 1993, BGL BNP Paribas has owned the “Le Luxembourgeois” cello, crafted by famous Venetian luthier Matteo Goffriller.
Long played by internationally renowned cellist Françoise Groben, in 2012 the bank made this magnificent instrument available to the first soloists of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra (OPL).
Dance, theatre, circus–today more than ever, the performing arts in all their forms must be encouraged and supported.
Making these creations accessible to the general public forms part of the bank’s social responsibility and commitment to society as a whole.
For many years, BGL BNP Paribas has demonstrated a close commitment to the contemporary art world. At times disturbing, often divisive, contemporary art probes and questions. This is essential because, as illustrated by the work of Maurizio Nannucci, "All art has been contemporary".
The bank supports Luxembourg Art Week, which presents a rigorous and demanding selection of work from avant-garde European art galleries. Luxembourg Art Week gives keen amateurs and collectors the opportunity to discover a diverse selection of contemporary art.
The bank also works alongside MUDAM, which houses the biggest collection of contemporary works in Luxembourg. Meanwhile, temporary exhibitions shine a spotlight on both well-established and upcoming artists.
A love match with tennis
The BNP Paribas Group has supported tennis for over 40 years, and shares a number of the sport’s values: fair play, responsiveness and performance.
Football–raising the game
No other sport generates as much passion as football!
Since 2008, BGL BNP Paribas has been one of the Luxembourg Football Federation’s, and has become the title sponsor of the national division, known as the BGL Ligue. The Luxembourg Football Federation now has almost 30,000 registered members. Our goal is to support the promotion and practice of football at all levels.
Comité Olympique et Sportif Luxembourgeois
For many years, BGL BNP Paribas has been one of the main partners of the Comité Olympique Sportif Luxembourgeois (COSL).
Every year, COSL organises several major events in which we actively participate to promote sport to the general public, including Spillfest, Olympiadag, and others. Our bank also organises events relating to the Games of the Small States of Europe, which take place every two years, and the Summer Olympic Games.
