Rating process

Audiences can rate all five nominated films from 2 September 2023 until 14 April 2024. 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 until the end of the rating period. Only the final 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 equally at 50%. The winning film will be announced at the LUX Audience Award Ceremony on 16 April 2024 in the European Parliament.
