Launched in 2007, the LUX FILM PRIZE is a film award granted every year by the European Parliament. The aim of this prize is to foster public debate on Europe and its values, as well as to support the promotion of European films inside the European Union. Once again, the 3 finalists of the Lux Prize can be watched in 24 languages in all 28 Member States, in the frame of the 7th edition of the LUX FILM DAYS. In collaboration with the European Commission (Creative Europe), screenings of the 3 movies will take place in all 28 member states at the same time.
The European Parliament – the Lux Prize and the European Commission – Creative Europe, in partnership with BOZAR CINEMA and CINEMA GALERIES, organize the LUX FILM DAYS on the 6, 7 and 8 November.
