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.

In Luxembourg, BGL BNP Paribas actively participates in a number of major film events:

The Luxembourg City Film Festival is the Grand Duchy’s official festival.Over 11 days, it features a selection of fictional and documentary films from international contemporary filmmakers. These films, coming from all walks of life, let Luxembourg and cross-border audiences discover a selection of out-of-the-ordinary works.

The British and Irish Film Season, supported by BGL BNP Paribas, is the premier annual event for British cinema. This festival celebrates the diversity of English-language films from independent production companies.

In cooperation with BGL BNP Paribas, Kinepolis offers the Culture at the Cinema programme. The live transmission of operas and plays on the silver screen, performed by the best artists of all time on the world’s greatest stages, brings the most prestigious performances to a cinema near you!

Music and the bank in tune

The bank works alongside a number of musical institutions.

Be it classical, contemporary, jazz, or rock, we have been a long-time partner to a variety of players in the music scene in Luxembourg and abroad.




"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).

Performing arts

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.

The arts

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.

In Luxembourg, BGL BNP Paribas is the No. 1 partner to the Luxembourg Tennis Federation and is the title sponsor for one of the biggest European women’s tennis tournaments, the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open. Over the years, some of the highest ranking players in the WTA have come to take part in this major event. The crowds can’t be wrong: every year, record numbers of spectators pour through the gates.


In 2018, the tournament was won by German Julia Goerges, 14th in the WTA rankings.

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.

Through a number of local initiatives, the bank helps promote a range of sporting activities: basketball, swimming, cycling, table tennis, handball, volleyball and athletics.
