Fifth Palme d’Or for Eurimages

European cinema triumphed last night at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival with the award of the Palme d’Or to the Austrian director Michael Haneke for The White Ribbon, an Eurimages-supported co-production between Austria, Germany, France and Italy. The film also won the FIPRESCI prize from the International Federation of Film Critics and a commendation from the Ecumenical Jury. In addition, the jury awarded a Special Prize to the French film-maker Alain Resnais, whose co-production Wild Grass (Les Herbes Folles), likewise supported by Eurimages, was selected in the official competition at the 62nd Festival. The President of Eurimages joins the Executive Director, his deputy and all the members of the Secretariat in offering warm congratulations to the producers of both these European feature films whose success at Cannes is a clear recognition of their high quality.
