Cannes 2024: History and lesser-known facts about the Cannes Film Festival


Cannes 2024 History and lesser known facts about the Cannes Film.cms

Started by Toby Rose in 2001, the Palm Dog Award has grown into an enjoyable and anticipated tradition at the Cannes Film Festival, rewarding the best canine performances in films. This peculiar award, often thought to be the equivalent of the Palme d’Or in the animal kingdom, is given to the most outstanding dogs, whether live or animated, on display during the festival. The trophy itself is a leather dog collar emblazoned with the words “PALM DOG,” a playful pun on the festival’s highest honor. Over the years, Palm Dog has gained a following, with its own jury of international film critics and a ceremony highlighting the often overlooked performances of dogs in cinema. Notable recipients include Jack Russell Terrier Uggie for his role in “The Artist” and the entire canine cast of “White God” for their collective performance.
