2013 LUX Prize: Finalists include Miele, The Selfish Giant & The Broken Circle Breakdown

Valeria Golino’s Un Certain Regard selected Miele, Felix Van Groeningen’s Berlin Film Fest entry The Broken Circle Breakdown and Clio Barnard’s Directors’ Fortnight selected The Selfish Giant are the remaining three selections for the 2013 edition of the LUX Prize (the top ten was once again announced at Karlovy Vary this year). Promoting break-thru Euro cinema with film narratives that “illustrate the diversity of European traditions, shed light on the process of European integration and provide insights into the building of Europe“, the annual LUX Prize Official Selection which nominates ten films (the 17 member selection panel which includes Karlovy Vary’s Karel Och and former Directors’ Fortnight head-honcho Olivier Père) and then dwindles down the process to a vulnerable three, before crowning one winner in the final month of the calender year, has been awarding the prize since 2007 with winners that include the originally titled: Io sono Li (2012), Les Neiges du Kilimandjaro (2011), Die Fremde (2010), Welcome (2009), Le silence de Lorna (2008) and Auf der anderen Seite (2007). Here are trailers/clips of the trio:
