The 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival was recently at Cannes, France from 14th to 25th May 2019. American film director Jim Jarmusch's ensemble zombie comedy film 'The Dead Don't Die' served as the opening film of the festival. French comedy film 'The Specials' directed by Olivier Nakache & Éric Toledano was the closing film of the festival.

The festival honoured French filmmaker Agnès Varda, who died in March 2019, featuring her on the official poster of the festival.

The Palme d’Or, the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, was awarded to “Parasite,” a ferocious satire and critical favorite from the South Korean director Bong Joon-ho. The main competition jury was led by the Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu

French director Céline Sciamma won the best screenplay prize for “Portrait of a Lady on Fire.” The best actor was won by Antonio Banderas, the star of Pedro Almodóvar’s widely-loved “Pain and Glory.” The best actress was presented to Emily Beecham, the star of “Little Joe,”.
