This year’s Cannes Film Festival jury — led by jury president Alejandro González Iñárritu, and also including Elle Fanning, Yorgos Lanthimos, Kelly Reichardt, and Paweł Pawlikowski — gave the Palme d’Or to Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite. The second place Grand Prix prize went to Mati Diop’s debut feature Atlantics.
In the Un Certain Regard sidebar, Karim Ainouz’s The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao won the top prize. The International Federation of Film Critics (Fipresci) awarded Robert Eggers’ Robert Pattinson-Willem Dafoe drama The Lighthouse with its award for best first or second feature.
