The LUX Prize helps audiences get through confinement

The European Parliament’s LUX Prize is adding its name to the list of key players starting up special initiatives in order to make these hard times a little more bearable for us from our respective homes. For this period of general confinement throughout Europe, the award is mapping the availability of the films from all of its editions, from 2007 to last year, on every VoD platform in the European Union and the United Kingdom. This initiative complements the #Europeansagainstcovid19 campaign put in place by the European Parliament.

The films are listed on the LUX Prize Films on Demand website, which will be continually updated to reflect the titles currently on offer. Later on, the complete array of Official Selection titles (up to ten per year) will also be added.

The LUX Prize will also provide this content to each country’s European Parliament Liaison Offices (EPLOs) so that they can shift the focus from their theatrical events onto online initiatives, thus making the most of the LUX films that are already available in their territories.

Furthermore, as part of the #Europeansagainstcovid19 campaign the LUX Prize and Cineuropa will start interviewing the members of the selection panel to discuss the current situation and find out which films available on VOD they recommend the viewers for this period of confinement.
