Xavier Legrand received the Silver Lion for Best Director and the Luigi de Laurentiis - Lion of the Future for a Debut Film. The director, clearly moved, was accompanied by his actors Denis Ménochet and Thomas Gioria.
Another major award: the Coppa Volpi for Best Actor went to Kamel el Basha, one of the two leads of The Insult by Ziad Doueiri. Charlotte Rampling received the Coppa Volpi for Best Actress for her performance in Hannah, a monority French production by Andrea Pallaoro.
Another minority French production, Foxtrot, by Samuel Maoz, won the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize.
In the Orizzonti section, three French films were awarded: Caniba, Oblivion Verses, and Les Bienheureux, but it was in the short film realm that we must applaud the performance of the latest film by Céline Devaux, You Will Be Fine, which was awarded the prize for the Best Short Film, as well as the nomination for the European Film Awards 2017.
Last but not least, International Critics' Week gave the SIAE Audience Award to Hunting Season by Natalia Garagiola (minority French coproduction), and honored Garçons sauvages by Bertrand Mandico the Mario Serandrei - Hotel Saturnia Prize for Best Technical Contribution.
