Cannes 2013: Un Certain Regard Winners Led By “The Missing Picture”

"The Missing Picture" does not miss out on an award at Cannes.

Here are the winners in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes:

PRIZE OF UN CERTAIN REGARD
THE MISSING PICTURE by Rithy PANH

JURY PRIZE
OMAR by Hany ABU-ASSAD

DIRECTING PRIZE
Alain GUIRAUDIE for STRANGER BY THE LAKE

A CERTAIN TALENT PRIZE
For the ensemble cast of LA JAULA DE ORO by Diego QUEMADA-DIEZ

AVENIR PRIZE (that’s “Prize of the Future”)
FRUITVALE STATION by Ryan COOGLER

Cannes Jury Prize winner Thomas Vinterberg led this group of judges. The others were Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, French actress Ludivine Sagnier, Rio Film Festival director Ilda Santiago and Spanish producer Enrique Gonzalez Macho. There were 18 films in the Un Certain Regard section.

Vinterberg had this to say about this year’s films:

“One of the finest achievements in filmmaking is to create unforgettable moments – moments that stay with us – as a collective memory – as a collective mirror of our existence. Clay figures, extreme beauty, violence, homosexual blow jobs, systematic humiliation of the human kind, Léa Seydoux’s legs, great Brando imitations are just some of the unique images that will follow us for a while. This selection was insistingly unsentimental, and still poetic. It was political, highly original, sometimes disturbing, diverse and first of all, very often – unforgettable.”

A little bit of something for everyone! The rest of the awards will be announced tomorrow by jury president Steven Spielberg.
