EP President Martin Schulz has annouced the winner of this year's LUX Film. The winner is Mustang, by Deniz Gamze Ergüven. The movie about Turkish girls breaking with tradition of forced marriage was selected by the Members of the European Parliament.

The LUX Prize was established in 2007, as a tangible symbol of the European Parliament’s commitment to the European film industry and its creative endeavours.

No matter what individual, historical or social issue it illustrates, each film in the LUX Prize Official Selection gives a glimpse of Europeans — their lives, their convictions, their doubts, and their quest for identity.
