Established in 2007, LUX Prize is given annually by the European Parliament for cinematic achievements. The purpose of LUX Prize is to draw attention to the public debate on the European Union and its policies and to support the expansion of European (co-)productions. LUX Film Days takes place in autumn in more than 40 cities in European Union as a tangible manifestation of the European Parliament's committed involvement in cinema and culture. With subtitles in all of the official EU languages, the competing films become accessible to general audience and encourage discussions on the issues that concern us all. During LUX Film Days, the three films shortlisted for LUX Prize will be shown simultaneously in 24 languages in 28 EU countries.
