For the eighth year, these films will be the main core of the LUX Film Days in the autumn, for which they will be subtitled into the 24 official languages of the European Union and screened in more than 50 cities and festivals across all 28 EU countries, once again taking advantage of the cooperation between the European Parliament Liaison Offices and the Creative Europe MEDIA Desks to strengthen visibility and increase accessibility. Three simultaneous screenings with webstreamed live debates with the directors will be organised in partnership with Creative Europe.
Lastly, the newly elected members of the European Parliament will be invited to vote for one of the three films in competition. The winner will be announced on 27 November at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, in the presence of the directors. The winning title will be further adapted for those with visual and hearing impairments, and will also receive promotional support during its international release.
"God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya" had its world premiere in the main competition of the 2019 Berlinale, where it received the Ecumenical Jury Prize.
