Studio Ghibli Gets Honorary Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival!

The first time ever the award has been gifted to an entire studio!

Today, the Cannes Film Festival made a significant announcement, Studio Ghibli will be honored with an Honorary Palme d’Or at this year’s event. This marks the first occasion that such an award has been bestowed upon an entire studio rather than an individual.

Cannes acknowledged the remarkable contributions of directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, who have personified Studio Ghibli’s innovative approach to animated filmmaking for over forty years. Their work has not only influenced countless filmmakers but has also brought a breath of fresh air to the world of cinema.

Official post:

Toshio Suzuki remarks: “I am truly honored and delighted that the studio is awarded the Honorary Palme d’or. I would like to thank the Festival de Cannes from the bottom of my heart. Forty years ago, Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata and I established Studio Ghibli with the desire to bring high-level, high-quality animation to children and adults of all ages. Today, our films are watched by people all over the world, and many visitors come to the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka and Ghibli Park to experience the world of our films for themselves. We have truly come a long way for Studio Ghibli to become such a big organization. Although Miyazaki and I have aged considerably, I am sure that Studio Ghibli will continue to take on new challenges, led by the staff who will carry on the spirit of the company. It would be my greatest pleasure if you look forward to what’s next.”

The Palme d’Or, also called the “Golden Palm” in English, stands as the most esteemed prize presented at the Cannes Film Festival, symbolizing one of the film industry’s highest honors.
