Queer Palm and Camera d’Or to Lukas Dhont's "Girl"

Queer Palm Awards 2018 - ©Moira Sullivan

An event that Cannes has still not acknowledged as an official parallel event even if it at Berlin and Venice is the “Queer Palm Award”. This is important in the struggle for inclusion of LGBTQI representation. This year the award went to "Girl" - Lukas Dhont, a bold narrative on a trans teen ballerina (Victor Polster). Selected for “Un Certain Regard” the film won best artistic interpretation (Victor Polster) - non-gender specific for the first time. It is also the Camera d’Or recipient.

Carolina Markowicz's “O Orfao” (The Orphan, Brazil) won the short film prize. Part of the Director’s Fortnight it chronicles the return of an adopted boy by a couple who considers him too effeminate. 

Queer Palm Jury president French producer Sylvie Pialat led a team consisting of Guadalajara Film Festival programmer Pepe Ruiloba, French producer Dounia Sichov, “A Taste of Ink” director Morgan Simon and “The Hollywood Reporter “film critic Boyd van Hoeij.
