CENTRE NATIONAL DE L’AUDIOVISUEL (CNA)unique cultural diversity in the world of sound and images
Visitors to the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA) get to experience an exceptional cultural diversity and are spoilt for choice with the centre’s two temporary exhibition spaces, Display01 and the Pomhouse, its two permanent galleries housing the Steichen Collections – The Bitter Years at the Waassertuerm and The Family of Man at Clervaux Castle – and, last but not least, its two cinemas and the centre’s multimedia library, known as the Médiathèque.
The CNA is both an open platform for the general public and a professional institution. It was established in 1989 and placed under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. Its missions are the conservation and enhancement of Luxembourg’s audiovisual heritage and to ensure that all members of the public can access the culture of sound and that of the fixed and moving image, through exhibitions, publications, screenings, conferences and other events aimed at the general public.
Production, distribution, conservation, restoration, creative and educational support... the tasks of the CNA’s three departments (film, photography and sound) are many and varied and require the involvement of numerous national and international specialists and creators. The CNA’s sound and photo studios, restoration workshop and archives enable it to serve the needs of professionals and creators from all corners of the audiovisual world.
