To check the official press release go here.
According to the list of awards at the site, the following awards are still to be announced. They must be busy watching the Cannes films, as they have not posted since May 22 and there will be a video coming with the awards ceremony… I’ll update when the announcements appear.
Feature Films: Rails d’Or
Also from this parallel section many films are competing for the Camera D’Or.
There are some videos at the site, that if you wish you could watch here; me, no way I’ll watch as all are films that I have to be surprised by, so I read/watch nothing -haven't seen the trailers I posted here- lol!.
