Cannes Festival 2013

The 66th Cannes Film Festival took place last month from the 15th to 26th May and was hosted by French actress Audrey Tatou.

This year's very cool poster features Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward

The festival opened with The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann and closed with Zulu directed by Jerome Salle.

The jury was headed by Steven Spielberg and included Nicole Kidman and Ang Lee. 

WINNERS

The prestigious Palme d'Or was awarded to the French film , Blue Is The Warmest Color, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche.  For the first time ever in the competition, the Jury also decided to award the Palme d'Or to the two actresses who star in the film, Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux.

The movie has shocked some critics with its graphic and controversial sex-scenes. The film tells the story of a lesbian relationship between a  15 year old girl and an older woman. 

Steven Spielberg described the film as a work of art and beauty and praised the director for his sensitive and creative handling of his actors as well as saying that he and the rest of the jury were spell bound.

Other winners were the Coen Brothers who were awarded the Grand Prix for Inside Llewyn Davis and Best Actor and Actress went to Bruce Dern(Nebraska) and Berenice Bejo (The Artist).
