Centre National de l’Audiovisuel et Centre Culturel Régional Dudelange (CNA / CCRD)

The CNA/CCRD is a joint project between Dudelange Municipal Authority and the Luxembourg government, and sees various cultural facilities united on a 14,000 m² derelict site formerly used by Arcelor Mittal. The CNA produces, edits and archives film, audio and textual documentation of the country. The professional section of the building features a film studio, recording studio, small cinema and all archives. The media centre, media lounge and exhibitions space are all accessible to the public. The CCRD features a music school for 800 pupils, practice rooms for local music clubs and various atelier spaces. The 500-seat concert hall, 144-seat cinema and cafeteria are at the disposal of both the CNA and the CCRD.
