In the context of the European Parliament LUX Film Prize – an initiative shining a spotlight on films that go to the heart of the European public debate – Creative Europe MEDIA, the European Parliament and Europa Cinemas have joined forces to organise simultaneous screenings of the three finalist films in different European cities on 6, 7 and 8 November.

Three LUX Prize finalist films

The three films competing to be the winner of the 2018 LUX Film Prize are The Other Side of Everything by Mila Turajlic, Woman at War by Benedikt Erlingsson and Styx by Wolfgang Fischer.

The main screenings of these films will take place in Brussels, where the audience will also have the chance to listen to the directors and interact live with them during a Q&A session. In addition, the events will be live-streamed on Facebook, on the LUX Prize YouTube channel, via the website of the Franco-German TV channel Arte and in every cinema taking part in the initiative so every moviegoer will be able to take part in the conversations with the directors via Facebook Live and Twitter, following the hashtag #luxprize.

The simultaneous screenings will be free of charge and begin on 6 November with The Other Side of Everything, from Brussels’ BOZAR. On 7 November, it will be the turn of Woman at War, at Brussels’ Cinema Galeries. Lastly, on 8 November, BOZAR will host the projection of the third film, Styx. The screenings will be preceded by a cocktail.

Those who are not in Brussels are invited to have a look at the LUX Prize agenda where they can find out the exact time and venue for the screenings in the different cities across Europe.

The 2018 LUX Film Prize winner will be announced on 14 November in Strasbourg.
