Winner list of 2019 Cannes Film Festival

Entertainment Desk :
Every year, the Cannes Film Festival is packed full of some of the most notable films of the year, and this year’s slate, which included entries from directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Terrence Malick and Bong Joon-ho (and even a TV series from Nicolas Winding Refn), was no exception to the rule.
The films showing at the festival - and all of its different sections, including the Directors' Fortnight and Critics’ Week - were a thrill to take in, acting as something of a harbinger for a wonderful year of movies to come.
