Lux Film Prize 2018 award ceremony 

EP President Antonio Tajani will unveil the winner of the 2018 Lux Prize on Wednesday noon in the Strasbourg hemicycle.

This year's finalists are the films “The Other Side of Everything” by Mila Turajlic (Serbia/France/Qatar), Woman at War by Benedikt Erlingsson (Iceland/France/Ukraine) and Styx by Wolfgang Fischer (Germany/Austria).

The European Parliament is paying the cost of subtitling the three finalist films in all 24 official EU languages and is producing a digital cinema package for each EU country.

The film winning the 2018 Lux Film Prize will be adapted for the visually and hearing impaired and receive promotional support during its international release. The prize winner is selected by MEPs.

A press conference with EP Vice-President Evelyne Gebhardt (S&D, DE) and the directors of the three films is scheduled for 15.00 on Wednesday, 14 November, in Strasbourg.
