Cannes 2018 Winners...

Cannes Film Festival Poster 2018 LandscapeCate Blanchett is President of the jury in what was a year marked by many discussions of gender equality, with the festival making a pledge for parity under the aegis of the 5050×2020 movement. There were three films by female directors in Competition, and Deadline’s Pete Hammond has suggested that one of them, Nadine Labaki’s Capernaum, is a strong contender for the Palme d’Or — should she win, it would be only the second time ever a woman has scooped the honor and the first time since Jane Campion in 1993 for The Piano.
