THE winners of the 76th Festival de Cannes, popularly known as the Cannes Film Festival were announced on Saturday. Known as the biggest and most popular film festival in the world, the festival concluded this weekend after 12 days.
French filmmaker Justine Triet won the top prize, the Palme d’Or for her film, Anatomy of a Fall. The director became only the third woman filmmaker in the history of Cannes Film Festival to win the prize. German period-drama film Zone of Interest bagged the second top prize, The Grand Prix.
Veteran Hollywood star Jane Fonda, who presented the Palme d’Or, reflected on seven women filmmakers in contention for the top prize. There were no women directors competing at that time and it never even occurred to us that there was something wrong with that. We have come a long way, the actor said.
The best actor award went to Kōji Yakusho for the film Perfect Days, while Turkish actor Merve Dizdar took the audience by surprise by winning the Best Actress for her film, About Dry Grasses.
