After a year of waiting, the Queer Palm, Cannes Film Festival LGBT+ award, is looking forward to celebrating its 10th anniversary next July on the Croisette.
For this particular edition, the organizers have chosen to entrust the presidency of the jury to NICOLAS MAURY.
The French actor, seen in the series CALL MY AGENT or in the films of Yann Gonzalez, made his directorial debut in 2020 with his film MY BEST PART, nominated for the first film César and which will be distributed this year in the United States.
Created in 2010 by the French journalist Franck Finance-Madureira, the Queer Palm awards each year in Cannes a film dealing with LGBT+, queer or feminist themed movies among all the Cannes sections.
The latest winners are the French director Céline Sciamma for her Portrait of a Lady on Fire and the Greek Director Vasilis Kekatos for his short film The Distance between us and the sky, both of which were awarded in May 2019 by the jury chaired by French actress Virginie Ledoyen.
The Queer Palm is the Cannes Film Festival queer, gay, lesbian, bi and trans (LGBT)award. Every year, a jury, including journalists, non-profit organizations members or artists, rewards one film listed in one of the following Cannes Film Festival selections : The Official Selection (in and out of competition), Un certain regard, The International Critics’ Week, the Directors’ Fortnight, The ACID’s (independent directors) selection. The Jury considers a film’s artistic, LGBT and gender-related topics qualities in order to award this film.
