The LUX Audience Award

LUX – the European Audience Film Award – superseding the former EFA People’s Choice Award and the Lux Prize – is a newly configured European audience award, jointly created and launched in September 2020 by the European Parliament and the European Film Academy, in partnership with the European Commission and Europa Cinemas.
The three nominated films will be subtitled in all the 24 EU languages to be accessible to the widest audience possible. After a “watch & vote” period (from mid-December to 23 May) during which the nominated films will be screened, and rated online at, the recipient of the new award will be determined by the general public and the Members of the European Parliament (each holding 50% of the vote). The winner will be announced in a ceremony in the European Parliament on 9 June 2021.
