The jury of the Cannes Film Festival announced the results of this year: the main prize - Palme d'Or - was won by English director Ken Loach for the film I, Daniel Blake, and the Grand Prix went to Xavier Dolan for the film Juste la fin du monde, which we made the list of the most anticipated films of the festival. The Best Director award went to two nominees: Olivier Assayas for Personal Shopper, starring Kristen Stewart, and Christian Mungiu for Bacalaureat. Palme d'Or winner Ken Loach already won the award in 2006 for The Wind That Shakes the Heather.
The Jury Prize went to Andrea Arnold for American honey, and Best Screenplay went to director Asgar Farhadi for Forushande. Shahab Hosseini, who starred in this film, received the award in the category "Best Actor", and Jacqueline Jose ("Ma’ Rosa ") was named the best actress. Actor Jean-Pierre Leo received the Honorary Palme d'Or for his achievements in the art of cinema. The full list of winners is published on the festival website. Contrary to our expectations, Jim Jarmusch's Paterson and Pedro Almodovar's Juliet were not awarded by the jury.
The film "The Apprentice" by the Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov, which was shown in the program "Special Look", was awarded the Chalet Prize, a famous French journalist and newsreel, which is awarded annually to films on a topical topic. President of the jury of the award, director and producer Bob Swam, when announcing the winner, called Serebrennikov's picture "bold, courageous, disturbing, explosive" and stressed that the problems raised in the film are universal.
