What is the LUX Prize?
Awarded by the members of the European Parliament, the LUX Prize honours a film which illustrates particularly well the universal nature of European values, cultural diversity and the European integration process. The LUX Prize consists of assistance in kind in the form of subtitling and video-to-film transfer (kinescopage) of the winning film in the 23 official EU languages as well as an original language adaptation for the deaf and hard of hearing.
