Madman Wins at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival
Cannes 2021 has come to a close, and we are excited that to celebrate Madman’s 25th birthday (*sob* they grow up so fast), we’ve picked up a big bag of presents from this year’s incredible line-up.
From this year’s Cannes Competition selection, we’re delighted to be bringing Australia and New Zealand audiences four films, which each won an award at Saturday’s closing ceremony:
- NITRAM (WINNER – Best Actor – Caleb Landry Jones)
- THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD (WINNER – Best Actress – Renate Reinsve)
- ANNETTE (WINNER – Best Director – Leos Carax, and WINNER – Cannes Soundtrack Award)
- MEMORIA (WINNER – Jury Prize)
Additionally, from the Un Certain Regard section of the festival we will be releasing GREAT FREEDOM (WINNER – Jury Prize), the thrilling LAMB (WINNER – Prize of Originality) and LA TRAVIATA, MY BROTHERS AND I. Plus from the Directors’ Fortnight section BETWEEN TWO WORLDS.
From the Out of Competition Premiere we are honoured to be releasing WHERE IS ANNE FRANK as well as the documentaries COW, and THE VELVET QUEEN over the coming year.
We have also snagged the closing night film – OSS 117: FROM AFRICA WITH LOVE, look out for an Australian release date soon. You can catch the opening night film, ANNETTE, on the big screen at The Melbourne International Film Festival (August 5-22), and in cinemas across the country from August 26.
