After the ceremony is complete, the winners are shuttled from one last photo call and forwarded over to what is a quickie press conference for what is a last round of questions. It’s one of the main reasons why I stay until the end date of the fest, as I feel invested in the films and the Palme d’Or outcome and this is a cherry on the sundae type moment for this journalist and nice wave visual memory goodbye between May and when I revisit the films at Toronto in the fall. Below you’ll find that moment where they enter the press room — naturally an all smiles type of atmosphere. We being with the fabulous Cate Blanchett and fellow jury members and then you’ll find the different category winners as well.
