The LUX Prize, created in 2007, is the European Parliament's cinema prize. It has two aims: To enhance public debate about and on European Union policies and to provide support for the distribution of European co-productions.
Since its creation, the filmography of the LUX Prize has contributed to enhancing various landscapes and environments. It has highlighted the different human and social situations encountered in everyday life. The selected films follow these themes and seek to address issues that affect our societies. "Just the Wind" by Bence Fliegauf deals with discrimination targeting the Roma minority, "Shun Li and the Poet" by Andrea Segre looks at immigration and the conflict between community traditions and individual aspirations and "Tabu" by Miguel Gomes, focuses on the state of the world and, within that, the state of our emotional intimacy.
These screenings at Bozar mark two important events: the opening of LUX FILM DAYS Belgium and the launch of the LUX Prize screenings inside the European Parliament.
This year thanks to the LUX FILM DAYS these three films will be screened in all 27 countries of the European Union and subtitled in the 23 languages ​​of the Union. In total, across more than 40 European cities!
The aim is to share the wealth and diversity of European cinema with the largest number of citizens possible. It will help to enhance debate surrounding the themes highlighted in the films, both on site and on the Internet. For the first time a Public Mention has been created to share ideas about LUX films and their themes.
Meanwhile, these three films will also be shown inside the European Parliament for two weeks. Members will have the opportunity to watch the movies and vote for the winner. The announcement of the winner will take place November 21, 2012 at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
In awarding the LUX Prize every year since 2007, the European Parliament supports European creativity and diversity because cinema has the power to move us, culture has the power to enlighten us and because the European Union is our common space.
