. Through the LUX Film Days, which started last weekend at the CinEast festival in Luxembourg and at IndieCork in Ireland, the three finalist films will be screened all around the continent (more information about LUX Film Days can be found here). All three of the films will be subtitled in the 24 official languages of the EU, but the winning film will also be adapted for the visually or hearing impaired in at least the original version.

On 3 November, the Prize will be presented at the Committee on Culture of the European Parliament. The Members of the Parliament will then vote on the films from 3 November until 16 December to decide on the winner.

Along with the votes of the Members of the European Parliament, the LUX Film Days will also make room for viewers’ opinions by featuring the LUX Prize Public Mention – viewers will be able to vote for their favourite film, and one of them will get the chance to travel to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival to announce the result.

On 16-17 December, an awards ceremony will be held in Strasbourg to announce the winner of the LUX Prize 2014. Alongside the awards ceremony, a seminar for journalists and film professionals will also take place.
