71st Cannes Film Festival seemed to have started with a whimper and ended with a bang. Asia Argento launched a scathing attack on Harvey Weinstein at the closing ceremony in a powerful #MeToo moment. In some other unforgettable statement-making instances, Kristen Stewart walked barefoot on the red carpet to denounce the infamous flats ban. 82 female filmmakers also condemned the gender inequality in Hollywood on the red carpet.

As far as the wins are concerned Jane Campion remains the only woman to bag the Palme d’Or.

Japanese veteran Hirokazu Kore-Eda scooped the top honour with his familial tale Shoplifters. He accepted the award in Japanese and dedicated it to the production team of the film. Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman won the Grand Prize.
