The jury, made up of actors, filmmakers and a musican, was led by co-presidents Joel and Ethan Cohen.

Speaking at a press conference after the ceremony, Joel said of their approach to judging the 19 Competition titles: “We are not a jury of film critics - we are artists looking at work and deciding what to celebrate in each of the works.”

Ethan said: “We couldn’t give a top prize to every movie - but we did try to balance out the attention on each of the films.”

Joel added: “We would have given more films multiple prizes but those are the rules »

And the Cannes Film Festival Winners Are...

24 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Cannes Film Festival is the most prestigious film festival in the world, and its top prize, the Palme d’Or, is film's highest honor. Consequently, people have really fervid feelings about what they think should win. Regardless of which film takes whichever award, it’s usually controversial. This year, the main competition jury, considered by some to be one of the best juries in the festival’s long, illustrious history, was headed by Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski), and featured Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan (Mommy), Sophie Marceau, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré, and Sienna Miller. Here are the films that won at this year’s Cannes, as reported by Indiewire. Let the angry think pieces commence.Palme d'Or: Dheepan, directed by Jacques Audiard Grand Prix: Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes Best Director: Hou Hsiao »

Cannes: Jacques Audiard's 'Dheepan' wins Palme d'Or

24 May 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Other winners include Son Of Saul, The Assassin, Chronic, The Lobster, The Measure Of A Man, Carol and Mon Roi.Scroll down for full list of winners

Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan has won the Palme d’Or at the 68th Cannes Film Festival (May 13-24).

Review: Dheepan

Critics had predicted that Todd HaynesCarol or Hou Hsiao-hsien’s The Assassin would take the top prize, while momentum appeared to shift to Laszlo Nemes’ Son Of Saul when it picked up the Fipresci prize. Even the bookies favoured a different title, pegging Yorgos LanthimosThe Lobster for the prestigious honour.

But while they each left the Lumiere Theatre with one prize apiece, it was Dheepan that claimed the top honour.

The drama centres on a Tamil freedom fighter (Antonythasan Jesuthasan, one of three non-professional Tamil leads) who, near the end of the Sri Lankan Civil War, flees to Europe with a makeshift family hoping to claim asylum »

Cannes: Jacques Audiard's Dheepan Wins Palme d'Or

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The 68th Cannes Film Festival has wound down after 12 days of premieres screenings and controversies about shoe policies, and all that was left was the award ceremony to wrap things up. Winners this year included Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan, which took the Palme d’Or and Rooney Mara for Todd HaynesCarol. Audiard winning seems something of a controversial choice, since, while it was admired, it hasn’t been as praised as the likes of Son Of Saul or Carol. Still, the other films got their due alongside quirky romantic drama The Lobster and Hou Hsaio-hsien’s impressive martial arts epic The Assassin. The Jury for the Main Competition this year included Joel and Ethan Coen, Guillermo del Toro, Sienna Miller, Sophie Marceau, Jake Gyllenhaal, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré and Xavier Dolan.

Jake Gyllenhaal had to duck Southpaw at Cannes

20 May 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Jake Gyllenhaal's new movie 'Southpaw' had to be pulled from the screening schedule at the Cannes Film Festival because the actor is part of the judging jury. The 34-year-old star's boxing drama has been creating quite a buzz and was due to be entered at the festival in the South of France. However, as Gyllenhaal is part of the jury the Weinstein Company decided to desist with their plans as they decided it would be too much pressure on the actor to act as a judge and appear as a promoting talent, according to the New York Post newspaper. Instead, a special private screening was arranged to take place on Tuesday (19.05.15) but it had to be cancelled as Gyllenhaal was too busy with his official duties. Gyllenhaal is sitting on the judging panel at the film festival alongside Sienna Miller, directors Ethan and Joel Coen, Guillermo del Toro, »

Meet the Jury of Cannes Film Festival 2015

14 May 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It was brief, but interesting. The Cannes jury members, led by presidents Ethan and Joel Coen, held a press conference on opening day to explain their love for cinema and what jury duty at the world's biggest film festival entails. The moderator introduced each jury member with a brief bio -- ladies first: Rossy De Palma, Sienna Miller, Sophie Marceau and Rokia Traoré, Jake Gyllenhaal, Guillermo Del Toro and Xavier Dolan. So what were their reactions when they were asked to join the jury? [caption id="attachment_269453" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Fox[/caption] Rossy De Palma couldn't keep her cool: "I just went aaaah!" she said holding her head as if to keep it from falling off from the excitement. Composer Rokia Traoré was more level-headed: "I do an artistic job that touches on cinema.” Guillermo Del Toro: “Thierry [Frémaux, Delegate General of the Festival] had called me three or four times previously to be part of the jury, but »

Guillermo del Toro Is Even More Excited to See Mad Max Than You Are

14 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Think you're the most excited person to see the new Mad Max? Think again, because Guillermo del Toro probably has you beat. A member of the Cannes Film Festival jury, the Pan's Labyrinth director is heading to bed early every night, waking up every day for 8:30 a.m. movies, and ignoring the press all he wants — a luxury for filmmakers here. But he's determined to brave the red carpet for tonight's premiere of Mad Max. "I want to see it with a crowd. George Miller, he’s a god for me," del Toro told me at the fest's swanky opening dinner, where he was fast making a case for himself as the most delightful member of this year's jury (which also includes the Coen brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller, and the fabulous Spanish actress Rossy de Palma). "Road Warrior, man," del Toro went on. "Emotionally, without thinking about [Luis] Buñel »

Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan, Guillermo del Toro on their Cannes jury duty

14 May 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Cannes is a fest littered with films and press conferences, so it’s perhaps no surprise that even the formal introduction to the jury becomes one of the hottest events of the day, with journos lining up well in advance to get a spot. The makeup of the jury is usually a fascinating and diverse group drawn from the world of cinema, and this year’s group seems particularly boisterous.

For North American audiences there are some faces not quite as familiar (such as Malian singer/poet Rokia Traoré, the Spanish Actress Rossy de Palma best known for her work with Pedro Almodovar), but the rest have had more out-of-the-fest bubble success. Sophie Marceau was in Braveheart and the Bond flick The World is Not Enough, and recently has directed several projects. Sienna Miller has had a massive year, including her major role in the box office hit American Sniper. »

Cannes’ Glitzy Opening Night Welcomes Hollywood’s A-List

13 May 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday with “Standing Tall,” a French drama about a judge (Catherine Deneuve) who tries to counsel a troubled teenager.

It was only the second opening-night film in the festival’s 68-year-history directed by a woman (Emmanuelle Bercot). Girl power seemed to be a theme on and off the red carpet. At 71, Deneuve proved she’s still an international movie icon, drawing cheers as she entered the Palais, along with her co-star Benoit Magimel.

The guest list included a cluster of Hollywood stars: Natalie Portman — whose directorial debut, “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” plays in the official selection; Naomi Watts (here for competition drama “Sea of Trees”); Julianne Moore; Lupita Nyong’o; and Isabella Rossellini, whose mother, Ingrid Bergman, graces the official festival poster. Chinese stars Fan Bingbing and Angelababy were also among the high-profile celebrities who attended.

Click on the images below for a closer look.

6 things we learned from the Coens, Jake and Guillermo at their Cannes press conf

13 May 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — If it's opening day at the Cannes Film Festival that means it's time for another awkward press conference with the competition jury. Typically, a Cannes jury is comprised of nine directors, actors and artists from all over the world who have often never met each other beforehand and have no intention of tipping their hands that they might actually already be looking forward to seeing particular films in the competition. The good news is that you can always count on a few members of the international press corps to ask some silly questions or get their facts so inexplicably wrong (guys, "Mad Max: Fury Road" isn't in competition) you wonder how they got credentialed in the first place. The 2015 edition of the festival features a jury headed by former Palme d'Or winners Ethan and Joel Coen (a rare two-headed jury president). Also on hand are Guillermo Del Toro (who, »

Cannes: The Coen Brothers Don’t Watch TV

13 May 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When members of the 68th Cannes Film Festival jury met for the first time on Tuesday afternoon, they were told that they could create an award for the films they were about to screen. “Sienna Miller asked that the prize be presented to her,” recalled Joel Coen at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon that helped kick off Cannes. “Guillermo [del Toro] became upset,” Joel joked. “If Sienna gets a prize, Guillermo gets a prize. We just met these people. It’s alarming.”

Regardless of that, the jurors seemed to get along just fine. As co-presidents of this year’s prize-giving committee, the Coen brothers dominated the conversation, offering thoughts on the moviemaking business, their lack of interest in television and what they were looking for as judges.

“It’s not that I don’t like TV,” said Ethan Coen, when asked about an interview he gave to a French magazine about FX’s “Fargo” series. »
