Jury Prize (Cannes Film Festival)

The Jury Prize (French: Prix du Jury) is an award presented at the Cannes Film Festival, chosen by the Jury from the "official section" of movies at the festival.[1] It is considered the third-most prestigious prize at the film festival, after the Palme d'Or and the Grand Prix.


From 1951 until 1966 the name Special Jury Prize was used for the second-most important award of the festival. In 1967 the second place was renamed "Grand Prize of the Jury", and the Special Jury Prize title was withdrawn. Then, in 1969, the Jury Prize was created separately from the Grand Prize, and both have been awarded yearly since. The Special Jury Prize reappeared twice in the 1990s, and one International Jury Prize was awarded in 1946.

New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion was the president of the Jury for the 2014 festival and oversaw a rare decision, in which the Jury Prize was awarded to two films: Mommy, by 25-year-old Xavier Dolan, and Goodbye to Language, by 83-year-old Jean-Luc Godard.[2]

UK director Andrea Arnold and UK director Ken Loach are tied for the record for most Jury Prizes. As of 2016 Arnold was awarded the prize for her films Red Road, Fish Tank, and American Honey, while Loach was awarded the prize for his films Hidden Agenda, Raining Stones, and The Angels' Share. Michelangelo Antonioni, René Clément, Masaki Kobayashi, and Samira Makhmalbaf have each won the award twice.
