The Xavierpop #Cannes2012 Report – Un Certain Regard and Cinéfondation Award Winners

As we wrap up the 65th Festival de Cannes, so come the awards. The In Competition Programme anchored by the Palme D’or is the last of the awards to be announced, however the Awards for Un Certain Regard and the Cinéfondation were announced earlier with director  Michel Franco‘s Despues de Lucia taking the top prize in the Un Certain Regard and Doroga Na (The Road To)  directed by Taisia Igumentseva taking the top prize in the Cinéfondation programme.

The decision was decided by a jury presided over by actor and director Tim Roth.
