Lux award 2022

Description

President Roberta Metsola awarded the 2022 LUX European Audience Film Award to “Quo vadis, Aida?” by Bosnian director Jasmila Žbanić, during a ceremony on 8 of June in Strasbourg. "This film is a strong call for justice for the women and mothers of Srebrenica who witnessed the atrocious killing of over 8,000 loved ones. Such horrendous atrocities and such a crime against humanity must never be forgotten,” said President Metsola at the ceremony, which took place in the Strasbourg hemicycle. The winner of the LUX Audience Award – jointly awarded by Parliament and the European Film Academy, in partnership with the European Commission and the Europa Cinemas network – is selected jointly by MEPs and a European audience (each accounting for 50% of the final decision). The three nominated films were announced on 11 December 2021 at the European Film Awards. These were: “Flee” by Danish director Jonas Poher Rasmussen. “Great Freedom” by Austrian director Sebastian Meise, “Quo vadis Aida?” by Bosnian director Jasmila Žbanić.
