74th Festival de Cannes: The Awards

It’s been an exceptional Festival. It was supposed to be, and it’s certainly lived up to its promise. For 12 days, the 74th Festival de Cannes has celebrated our reunion with the cinema as a great international event full of discoveries, encounters and sharing.

Just as American actress-director Jodie Foster was awarded an honorary Palme d’or at the Opening Ceremony on 6 July, Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio has received the distinction this evening for his exceptional career. The trophy was presented to him by Paolo Sorrentino.

On the stage of the Grand Théâtre Lumière, the Master of Ceremonies, Doria Tillier, was joined by the Feature Film Jury chaired by Spike Lee and composed of Mati Diop, Mylène Farmer, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Hausner, Mélanie Laurent, Kleber Mendonça Filho, Tahar Rahim and Song Kang-ho, for the announcement of the 2021 Awards.
