Cannes to Wrap With Presentation of Palme D’Or on Saturday

The Palme d’Or and other honors are chosen by the nine-member jury led by French actor Vincent Lindon and will be presented at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on Saturday.

The closing ceremony brings an end to a Cannes that has attempted to fully resurrect the annual France spectacular, which was postponed due to the pandemic in 2020 and drew only moderate attendance last year. This year’s festival took place against the backdrop of the Ukraine conflict, which provoked red-carpet protests and debate about the role of cinema in times of war.

The closing ceremony starts at 2:30 p.m. EDT and lasts around an hour. It will be streamed live by Brut outside of France.

But who will emerge victorious? The Palme d’Or, one of cinema’s most prestigious awards, is notoriously difficult to predict, despite bookmakers’ best efforts. It is entirely dependent on the jury’s deliberations, which are held in private. Last year’s winner was the French body horror movie “Titanic,” with director Julia Decournau becoming only the second female director to win the Palme. In 2019, Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” won the Cannes Film Festival before going on to win the Academy Awards.

The biggest Hollywood pictures in Cannes this year — “Elvis,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” and “Three Thousand Years of Longing” — were shown outside of Cannes’ 21-film competition program.
