Follow live announcements from the closing ceremony of the 77th Cannes Film Festival, and the verdict of the jury chaired by Greta Gerwig.

Greta Gerwig and her jury saw the 22 films in the competition and we imagine that, like us, they went through all the nuances ranging from total support to the most categorical rejection. Except that obviously, it’s a matter of coordinating impressions and finding the right wavelength to achieve a list of winners that strikes people’s minds and above all, like last year with Anatomy of a fall by Justine Triet, satellites a film and a filmmaker for at least one year of international honors curriculum. This year, the lucky winners are:

Golden camera

Armand by Halfdan Ullmann Tondel

The Man Who Could Not Remain Silent by Nebojsa Slijepčević

Queer palm

Three kilometers to the end of the world by Emanuel Parvu

In deep Romania, homophobia by the kilo. In the sumptuous setting of the Danube delta, either Three kilometers to the end of the world, Emanuel Parvu recounts, sometimes too vividly, the rejection by an entire village of a young boy caught kissing another. Read our review
