Viewing (8'33"). On Friday, the Guardian's Xan Brooks sat down with Peter Bradshaw, Jason Solomons, Leslie Felperin and Mark Cousins "to reflect on this year's less than vintage selection before laying their bets for the Palme d'Or."

Awards for the student films in the Cinéfondation Selection were announced on Friday and indieWIRE's got the list of winners.

IndieWIRE's been collecting letter grades for the films from nearly 20 critics.

Updates, 5/23: Basil Tsiokos for indieWIRE: "Gregg Araki's Kaboom was announced today as the winner of the inaugural Queer Palm, awarded to an LGBT film at the Cannes Film Festival, at a ceremony held at Zanzibar, the oldest gay bar in Europe and popular with gay fest goers. Sponsored by Gallic filmmakers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (Cote d'Azur, The Adventures of Felix), the Queer Palm joins Berlin's Teddy and Venice's Queer Lion, similar LGBT-themed awards at other major world festivals."

Robert Koehler's favorites.

A MUBI travelogue.

Jonathan Romney looks back on Cannes 2010 for the Independent.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives wins the Palme d'Or. Here's the complete list of award-winners. Also: The Un Certain Regard and independent jury awards.

Updates, 5/24: The award-winners have given a brief press conference and Cannes has selected quotes and audio.

Festival wrap-ups: Peter Bradshaw (Guardian), Mary and Richard Corliss (Time), Manohla Dargis (New York Times), Roger Ebert, Aaron Hillis (Moving Pictures), J Hoberman (Voice), Ben Kenigsberg (Time Out Chicago), Eric Kohn (indieWIRE), Guy Lodge (In Contention), Lisa Nesselson (Boston Phoenix), Andrew O'Hehir (Salon), John Powers (NPR), James Rocchi (MSN Movies), Blake Williams and Steve Zeitchik (Los Angeles Times).

"If the Main Competition suffered because of the lack of film output from last year (Venice and TIFF have already seen the benefits), next year's edition of the Cannes film festival is already shaping up to be a fantastic year with names like Pedro, Von Trier, Dardennes, Cronenberg, PTA and Salles in the possible line-up. For those who made a case about there not being much female representation — they'll be pleased to see that the latest works from Andrea Arnold and Lynne Ramsay should be in the line-up." At ioncinema, Eric Lavallee presents "a list of 20 projects I think will be in the fest next year."

"Apichatpong's Palme d'Or brings renewed meaning to the purpose of a prize which has increasingly been identified with establishment cinema, and in one dramatic stroke, a smart jury with nerve transforms it like one of Apichatpong's jungle creatures into a whole new animal," blogs Robert Koehler at "Whatever anyone thought of the Competition going in, none of that matters now. A great film has gotten its due, and now, instead of gazing back, the Palme is looking forward." Also, a filmmaker gallery.
