The most publicized awards are those of the official competition. About twenty films are presented to the jury of feature films, which decides the prize list. Out-of-competition feature films (special screenings and usually opening and closing films) are not eligible for rewards.

After problems of movies which accumulated too many rewards (Barton Fink in 1991, Le Pianiste in 2001), the regulation was updated. Among the seven prizes to be awarded, only one can reward two films ex-aequo (except the golden palm). And only the prize of the script or the jury can be cumulated with a price of interpretation, on derogation of the president of the festival. Hopefully you will understand this one.

The awards are: 

Camera d’or : It is the most prestigious award of the Festival, the best film of the competition.

Grand prix: The Grand Prize is the second most prestigious award of the Festival. Initially, it was to reward a more accessible film than the Palme d’Or, the distinction was never applied

Prix du jury:The jury Prize is awarded to a film of the official competition appreciated globally by the jury.

Prix d’interprétation masculine: Best actor

Prix d’interprétation féminine: best actress

Prix de la mise en scène: Best director

Prix du scénario: Best screenplay




I first stated this site with 2 friends but I am the only one now taking care of it. I love movies sometimes that is all I talk about. I love TCM the best station ever. I am studying to be an Infographics/special effect for movies. I will put the best films on my website no exception. It is like I am evolving with it, I am constantly redoing stuff on it. So have fun with it and thank you for visiting.
