Only are included feature films, TV movies and direct-to-video releases.
Not included neither documentaries nor short films.
From 1939 to 1954 (from numbers 1 to 19), the highest prize of the festival was known as Grand Prix du Festival International du Film.
From 1955 to 1966 (from numbers 20 to 29), the highest prize was awarded with the name Palme d'Or.
In 1964 (number 30) copyright issues with the Palme led the Festival to return to the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film, which remained that way until 1974 (number 42).
In 1975 (number 43) the Palme d'Or was reintroduced and has since remained the top prize of the festival.

The 50 Greatest Cartoons: As Selected by 1,000 Animation Professionals is a 1994 book by animation historian Jerry Beck. It consists of articles about 50 highly regarded animated short films made in North America and other notable cartoons, which are ranked according to a poll of 1,000 people working in the animation industry.
In 1999 the British Film Institute surveyed 1,000 people from the world of British film and television to produce the BFI 100 list of the greatest British films of the 20th century. Voters were asked to choose up to 100 films that were 'culturally British'. Some of the selected films were wholly or partly produced by non-UK companies, or made with input from film makers born overseas, but were regarded by voters as having significant British involvement.
