The LUX Audience Award, which celebrates the diversity of European cinema, is a joint film award of the European Parliament and the European Film Academy, which is presented in Hungary as part of the LUX FILM DAYS.

Four of the nominated films can be seen at Uránia National Film Theater and one of them will be screened online at a later date.

An important change compared to the past year, that there are already five nominated films competing for the award.

Also the identity of the winner can change even at the last moment.
