Rating process

Audience members can rate all five nominated films from 11 December 2022 until 12 June 2023. Audiences will be able to rate each film via the LUX Rating Platform. Members of the European Parliament will be able to vote via a dedicated rating page of the institution. Ratings can be changed an unlimited number of times up until the end of the rating period. Only the last rating will be taken into consideration.

The final ranking will be determined by combining the public score and the score from the Members of the European Parliament, with each group being weighted at 50%. The winning film will be announced at the LUX Audience Award Ceremony on 14 June 2023 in the European Parliament’s Hemicycle in Strasbourg.
