New Spotlight Section: PALME d'OR

This year's Cannes Film Festival starts on May 11th. While we wish we could take two weeks off to hob and nob with cinema elite on the sunny French Rivera, we'll be happy with our new Spotlight rental section featuring winners of the prestigious PALME D'OR. You can read about the history of the festival's top prize here. Here's a list of the films in the section, along with the year they won (some years have multiple winners, read the history link to see why).
