After an eventful few weeks at Cannes in the South of France, the film festival has come to its final moment: the Palme d’Or awards ceremony. Presented by Jane Fonda (who coincidentally prided the festival for the number of women nominated for the award), Justine Triet’s Anatomy Of A Fall has won the famed prize for the martial murder-mystery-thriller starring Sandra Hüller. This marked the fourth Palme d’Or winner acquired by Neon, after Titane, Triangle of Sadness, and Parasite.

The jury, led by last year’s winner Triangle of Sadness’s Ruben Östlund, is made of actors, directors, and filmmakers from around the world like Julia Ducournau, Brie Larson, Rungano Nyoni, Maryam Touzani, Paul Dano, Denis Ménochet, Atiq Rahimi, and Damián Szifron. As for the ceremony itself, presenters for the evening included actors Song Kang-ho, Zar Amir Ebrahimi, John C. Reilly, and Pixar creative director Pete Docter, with actress Jane Fonda handing out the final prize.
