The LUX Film Prize Competition and the LUX Film Days

From the 10 films in the Official Selection, 3 entries are selected and announced at the Venice Days press conference in Rome at the end of July 2017 as those taking part in the LUX Film Prize Competition. These films then compete to be the winner of the 2017 LUX Film Prize, and are the core of the 2017 LUX Film Days. Alongside this year's winner, Sami Blod, Western and 120 BPM were also shortlisted finalists.  

In order to support the European film industry and help the most significant European (co-)productions to circulate beyond their national market, the European Parliament LUX Film Prize subtitles the 3 competing films into the 24 official languages of the European Union and screens them in all 28 EU countries during the LUX Film Days. In doing so, the European Parliament supports cultural diversity, as it brings films to audiences across Europe and encourages debate on the issues they raise.

The 2017 LUX Film Prize winner was awarded on 15 November in Strasbourg. The winning film will also be made available for the visually and hearing-impaired, and promoted by the European Parliament.
