Charlotte Rampling displays the Palm Dog Award

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.
