LUX Prize celebrates ten years

The European Parliament’s LUX Prize will celebrate its tenth anniversary on 10 October in Brussels, with a series of events that will be organised with the involvement of MEPs, key figures on the European cinema scene, directors of films honoured by the LUX Prize, journalists and European film buffs. Several activities are being planned to mark this special day.

The Committee on Culture and Education will host and co-organise an exchange of views, streamed live on europarl.eu and TV channel ARTE’s website, with inspiring filmmakers who contributed to shaping European cultural and emotional assets. “What Role for European Cinema in Tomorrow’s Europe?”, starting at 17.00, will feature an introduction by chairwoman of the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) Silvia Costa, a keynote speech by two-time Palme d’Or winner Ken Loach, and an exchange of views with the participation of LUX Film Prize-selected directors Céline Sciamma (Girlhood [+see also:

by Jonas Carpignano (read the news), it is now Erguven’s time to show her feature film to European audiences, and participate in a streamed Q&A and a Twitter wall right after the screening. Audiences from across Europe will be able to interact directly with the film director, creating a truly European debate. This event will illustrate the spirit of the LUX Film Days: to create a temporary European public sphere by screening the same film at the same moment in different member states.
