Juliette Binoche, Catherine Deneuve Honored at Positive Cinema Gala in Cannes

Juliette Binoche and Catherine Deneuve were honored May 14 at a gala dinner for the Positive Planet Foundation in Cannes. The glamorous evening at the Palm Beach included an art auction and prizes to the winners of Positive Cinema Week, which promotes works that propose solutions and bring attention to global issues.

The eighth annual fundraising dinner focused on women in cinema, so it was fitting that Tonie Marshall won best positive picture for “Number One,” while Sonia Rolland won best positive documentary for “Femmes du Rwanda.”

Xavier Legrand was awarded best positive first film for “Jusqu’a la garde,” while best positive short film went to Alejandro Agag for “Formula E car vs. Cheetah.”

Binoche was awarded the Positive Woman in Cinema award for her role in Claire Denis’ “Let the Sunshine In.”

“The most important thing is to be truthful,” Binoche said as she accepted her award. She ended her speech, which focused on bringing together men and women and people from every country, with “a special thought for the migrants.”

A brunette Deneuve accepted the career achievement honor from the evening’s host, comedian Bassem Youssef, though the revered actress declined to take a selfie with him.

Alexander Desplat won the best positive soundtrack for “The Shape of Water.”

During Positive Cinema held beachfront screenings, hosted screenings of nominated films, and ran films on French television that promoted the positive theme.
