How to Watch and Stream the 2023 Cannes Awards – IndieWire

Just as quickly as it started, another Cannes Film Festival is winding down. This year’s festival featured one of the most stacked Cannes lineups in years, with new films from the likes of Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Todd Haynes, Jonathan Glazer and Wim Wenders opening alongside more popular films like “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny”. ” and the first two episodes of the controversial new HBO series “The Idol”.

With all the biggest releases firmly in the rearview mirror plus Disney/Pixar’s “Elemental” out of competition, it’s almost time for the jury to hand out the festival’s prizes, including the coveted Palme d’Or. Ruben Östlund, newly Won his second Palme d’Or for 2022’s “Triangle of Sadness” after winning for 2017’s “The Square,” he served as this year’s jury president, overseeing a multi-director jury that also includes the filmmaker of ” Titane” Julie Ducournau. along with Paul Dano and Brie Larson.

The Cannes awards are notorious for being unpredictable, so it’s anyone’s guess which films they will ultimately choose to award. Many early predictions have Glazer’s “The Zone of Interest,” Justine Triet’s “Anatomy of a Fall,” and Aki Kaurismaki’s “Falling Leaves” as current favorites. But the latest round of positive reviews for Wenders’ Tokyo-set drama “Perfect Days” could also make it a formidable competitor: The 77-year-old director is a Cannes legend and his latest work is his best-reviewed film in years. Wenders’ film is also being acquired by Neon, a Palme d’Or fortune teller after the distributor took top prizes for “Triangle of Sadness,” “Titane” and “Parasite” in recent years. Neon also has Alice Rohrwacher’s “Anatomy of a Fall” and “La Chimera” for North American distribution outside of Cannes competition.

Many have also hailed Anderson’s “Asteroid City” as a return to form for the idiosyncratic director after mixed reactions to “Isle of Dogs” and “The French Dispatch,” so there may be an opportunity for the star of independent film rock resumes its first Grand Prix at Cannes.
