74th Cannes Film Festival: Julia Ducournau Becomes 2nd Female Director In History To Take Palme D’Or With ‘Titane’ – Full Winners List

Vincent Lindon, Julia Ducournau and Agathe Rousselle pose with the Palme d’Or for ‘Titane’

The Cannes Film Festival held its closing night ceremony and final screening on Saturday night. In what was one of the wildest, and most ground-breaking awards ceremonies of recent memory at the Cannes Film Festival French filmmaker Julia Ducournau became the second-ever female director to win the Palme d’Or, with her audacious Titane. The last time a woman scooped the top prize was in 1993 when Jane Campion shared honors in a tie between her The Piano and Chen Kaige’s Farewell My Concubine. 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.
