Europa Special – LUX Prize

An integral part of the Europa programme section is Europa Special, which will present the three finalists for this year’s LUX Prize. Introduced in 2007 by the European Parliament in effort to support European film industry and further diversity of European culture, the principal mission of the LUX Prize is to draw attention of the general public to the European Union and its policies and stimulate the public debate on topics tackled by candidate films. This year, the final selection includes three motion pictures that reflect pressing problems and issues of contemporary Europe such as migration, global economic crisis or tensions between tradition and modernity.


The section was put together in cooperation with the Information Bureau of the European Parliament in Slovakia.
