Festival de Cannes

The 2021 Cannes Film Festival officially came to an end where the winners list was announced by the Feature Film Jury. It was a remarkable Festival full of discoveries and here is our take on the main winners!

Palme d'Or

Titane directed by Julia Ducournau

As an unique and controversial film won over more traditional entries, it was refreshing to see Julia Ducournau’s speech as the second woman to receive this award in the history.

Grand Prix

A Hero directed by Asghar Farhadi & Compartment N°6 directed by Juho Kuosmanen

The second most prestigious award of the festival was a tie! Congratulations!

Best Director

Leos Carax for Annette

Carax was praised for his ever-enigmatic creativity and we cannot agree more!

Best Screenplay

Hamaguchi Ryusuke & Takamasa Oe for Drive My Car

A three-hour adaptation of Haruki Murakami short story made into a profoundly beautiful film.

Jury Prize

Memoria directed by Apichatpong Weerasetkhakul & Ahed’s Knee directed by Nadav Lapid

A well deserved two-way tie between movies that respond to today’s struggles.

Best Actress

Renate Reinsve The Worst Person In The World

The graceful Renate Reinsve shined in the coming-of-age drama and mesmerised everyone on the red carpet!

Best Actor

Caleb Landry Jones for Nitram

The actor skillfully portrayed a murderer which is just admirable!

Short films - Palme d'Or

All the Crows in the World directed by Tang Yi

The short trailer was a delightful and witty portrayal of living as a 18-year-old school girl in Hong Kong.

Camera d'Or

Murina by Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović

A stunning-looking film using the aesthetics of the sea gives it its own character, well done!
