Who won at the Cannes Film Festival 2014?


On Sunday 25 May the curtain closed on one of the major events in the film industry – the Cannes Film Festival 2014. For 13 days a beautiful city of Cannes hosted cinematographic elite, high-end events packed with celebrities and masses of elegantly dressed city visitors.


This was also the season when private jets and luxury helicopters from Nice to Cannes could be spotted regularly crossing the azure sky, luxury supercars roaming about the narrow roads along the Croisette and world’s largest and most exclusive yachts could be observed harboured in the bay behind the Palais de Festival and outside of the Cap d’Antibes, with numerous yacht’s tenders cruising from one yacht to another, delivering premium yacht food ahead of the exclusive parties and private screenings hosted aboard those luxury vessels.


Yet,  the biggest screenings were in the famous Theatre de Lumiere.  Luxisto looks back at this year’s big winners:
