Class Enemy Among the Ten Candidates for the Lux Award

07. July 2014
The Lux Award is given by the European Parliament. The film by the director Rok Biček has managed to get into the finals in the competition of more than 60 films.

The Slovenian feature Class Enemy, directed by Rok Biček and produced by Triglav Film, has qualified among the ten films competing for the Lux Award, given once per year by the European Parliament.

Today the Triglav Film company announced that the producers Aiken Veronika Prosenc and Janez Lapajne submitted the film for the selection for the aforementioned award in March of this year.

In the middle of June they received an official notice that Class Enemy has qualified – out of more than 60 titles reviewed by the selectors this year – among the ten films which are yet to compete for the qualification among three finalists.

The organisers are to announce the titles of the finalists in the end of July, and then the finalists will be presented in the beginning of September in cooperation with the Venice Days. In the autumn the three finalists will be screened at special projections in all of the European Union member states.

In the middle of December the final ceremony will follow in Strasbourg, where the final victor – the film that is to receive the 2014 Lux Award – will be announced. Meanwhile Class Enemy is to have its Russian premiere at the Voices festival, taking place in the city of Vologda. In the competition programme the first and second films of individual directors are shown.
