Do Cannes Winners Get Prize Money?
Over the years, many have wondered if Cannes Film Festival winners get any prize money or not. The answer may not be that direct. While Cannes is all about the glitz, glamour, name and fame, winners of some specific awards do tend to get some prize money as well.
According to The Sun, the reward for winning the Palme d’Or the Grand Prix is mainly exposure and prestige. However, during La Semaine de la Critique, there are some money rewards kept aside for films.
As per the 2018 report by The Sun (mentioned above), the Leica Cine Discovery Prize for Short Film awards £3,500 and the Louis Roederer Foundation Rising Star award gives £4,400 to the best actor or actress in their first film.
Apart from this, as per the publication, there is also an award given to a first time filmmaker to help distribute their movie in France – The Gan Foundation Award for Distribution gives £17,600 in return for a marketing strategy.
