LUX Prize: Finalists competing for prestigious EP film award announced
"Cold Case Hammarskjöld", "God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya" and "The Realm" will be competing for this year's Lux Prize, the European Parliament's film prize.
The three finalists were unveiled during a press conference in Italy's capital, Rome.
The Finalists were Cold Case Hammarskjöld by Mads Brügger (a coproduction of Denmark/Norway/Sweden/Belgium/UK/Germany); God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya by Teona Mitevska (a coproduction of North Macedonia/Belgium/Slovenia/Croatia/France) and The Realm by Rodrigo Sorogoyen (a coproduction of Spain/France)
The European Parliament’s LUX Film Prize helps European films circulate beyond their national borders. That is why the three shortlisted films are subtitled in all of the EU's 24 official languages. If they aren’t in a cinema near you over the next couple of weeks, watch out for the LUX Film Days this autumn, when they will be shown in more than 50 cities and many film festivals across Europe.
The winning film will be chosen by MEPs and the prize awarded on 27 November during the plenary session in Strasbourg in the presence of the film makers.
