It turns out the only US channel carrying the Cannes Ceremonie de Cloture is TV5Monde--and in LA you have to subscribe (in advance) on Time Warner Cable to all the French channels to get it. Oh well. And I wasn't able to get it live on Canal Plus online--they'll edit it together for tomorrow, it seems. Which leaves IndieWire, reporting live.
