CANNES 2016 FIPRESCI PRIZE WINNERS ANNOUNCED!


The eternal arbiter of artistic excellence at festivals internationally, FIPRESCI, has revealed the three films to earn its prestigious prizes from Cannes 2016. As expected, Maren Ade's universally-acclaimed (and Screen Daily Jury Grid record-breaker) Toni Erdmann wins in the Official Competition section. There was another female director, from Critics' Week, among the award recipients, and a surprising choice for the jury's Un Certain Regard pick. Take a look:
