This year's Palm Dog Awards, honoring canines in film, thematically skews toward RIP (Rover in Peace) as three of its contestants were dramatically killed off on screen: Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt, Ben Wheatley's Sightseers. Begun in 2001 by Brit, Toby Rose, it is awarded to the best performance by a canine (live or animated) or group of canines during the Cannes Film Festival. The award consists of a leather dog collar with the term “PALM DOG". This year's winners are Banjo and Poppy in Sightseers. A special Jury Prize was given to Billy Bob in Le Grand Soir.
