The finalists competing for the 2015 LUX Film Prize have been announced: Mediterranea, Mustang and Urok (in English: The Lesson). The three films deal with current social issues such as immigration, position of women and girls, education and economic problems in society.

Launched in 2012, the LUX FILM DAYS project aims to bring the screenings of the finalists of the LUX FILM PRIZE Official Competition closer to European citizens across all 28 countries of the European Union (EU) in the same period (Autumn).

The three finalists competing for the European Parliament´s annual film award Lux Prize  this year are:

  • Mediterranea, by Jonas Carpignano – Italy, United States, Germany, France, Qatar
  • Mustang, by Deniz Gamze Ergüven – France, Germany, Turkey, Qatar
  • Urok (The lesson), by Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov – Bulgaria, Greece.

The announcement was made on 24 July in Rome during the "Venice Days" by European Parliament vice-president Antonio Tajani and culture committee chair Silvia Costa.

The three finalist films will be subtitled in all 24 EU official languages and will be screened in more than 50 cities and 20 festivals throughout Europe. The final winner will be also adapted for the visually and hearing impaired and receive support for its international promotion.

The film winning the 2015 LUX prize will be selected by MEPs and announced on 25 November dung the EP plenary session in Strasbourg, in the presence of the four finalist directors.
