We have interviewed Evelyne Gebhardt, Vice-President of the European Parliament, in charge of the LUX Film Prize, during the 71st Cannes Film Festival.

Evelyne Gebhardt took part in the LUX Film Prize events at the Creative Europe MEDIA stand, in which the current edition and the new perspectives of the European Parliament's initiative were discussed. Gebhardt told us, "The LUX Film Prize is very, very important for European institutions because it's one of the ways in which we can raise awareness about different cultures in the European Union. I've always been optimistic, and I have become more optimistic in recent years, because I can see that citizens are starting to understand what Europe has to offer".
