08-19 MAY 2018

The 71st Festival de Cannes will close tonight Saturday 19 May with the Awards ceremony due to start at 1715GMT. Australian actress Cate Blanchett, in her role of President of the Jury, will announce the prestigious Palme d'Or.

Newcomer Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski is one of the favourite to get to the top prize for his black and white love story "Cold War", as well as Japanese director Kore-Eda Hirokazu for "shoplifters". Russia's Kirill Serebrennikov also stands a chance with "Leto" (Summertime), about the 1980's Russian pop sensation Viktor Tsoi. Italian directors Matteo Garrone' revenge movie "Dogman" and Alice Rohrwacher for "Lazzaro Felice" are also seen as serious contenders. Another female director, the Lebanese Nadine Labaki was applauded on La Croisette for her plight of illegal immigrants and the exploitation of their children in "Capharnaum".

The 9-Members jury, which includes US star Kristen Stewart, Canadian director Denis Villeneuve and Russian independent film-maker Andrey Zvyagintsev, will also award the festival prizes for best director, best actor and actress.
