Who are in contention for awards at this year’s Cannes film festival!

After the Academy Awards the film festival in Cannes with its Palme d’Or is the most prestigious film award in the business. This while also being less predictable than the Oscars while also being quite controversial. Especially as the jury often consists of actors and directors not going the same direction.

The Palme d’Or has been handed out since 1955 and is often regarded as a pinnacle and comes with a lot of prestige for those who win. The jury at Cannes often consists of actors and directors but does not come without controversy. Especially when almost all of those in the jury seem to go in different directions making everything quite unpredictable and charming in its own way but those in contention for the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year are:

10) Arnaud Desplechin (France) with his movie “Brother and Sister”.

9) Felix van Groeningen (Belgium) with his movie “The Eight Mountains”.

8) Kirill Serebrennikov (Russia) with his movie “Tchaikovsky's Wife”.

7) Valeria Bruni Tedeschi (France) with her movie “Forever Young”.

6) Ruben Ostlund (Sweden) with his movie “Triangle of Sadness”.

5) Tarik Saleh (Sweden/Egypt) with his movie “Boy From Heaven”.

4) Ali Abbasi (Sweden/Iran) with his movie “Holy Spider”.

3) Jerzy Skolimoski (Poland) with his movie “EO”.

2) James Gray (The US) with his movie “Armageddon Time”.

1) Cristian Mungiu (Romania) with his movie “R.M.N”

The award will be decided on the 28th of May.
