Oh What A Glam Turnout

We had a wonderful ceremony in the Uk Film Centre with our regular guests and some new faces.
The most exciting moment was the appearance of Lucky, who played winning turn Lucky in Arabian Nights, by Skype. This was a Palm Dog first which brought the house, or should I say UK Film Centre swanky tent, down…..
The touching scenes of Dixie being befriended by households in a Portuguese tower block in a selection of rather fetching coats won the hearts and minds of the jury and seized the top prize for Arabian Nights.
The Grand Jury Prize this year went to a dog reincarnation of a man’s brother. ‘Bob the dog’ in The Lobster was played onscreen by father and son canine acting team Jaro and Ryac.
And for this special fifteenth Palm Dog we saw the creation of a special prize. The Palm DogManitarian award was created to celebrate the fostering of relations between the human race and men, women and children’s best friend. This year it was scooped by Je Suis Un Soldat. This fine French film tells of the plight of dogs caught up in the illicit trade in dogs being sold from Eastern Europe.
Among worthy contenders which just failed to secure a coveted a Palm Dog trophy were the noble sheep dog in Rams and a quartet of hounds who pound Hampstead Heath, their story was told in a wonderful short, Four Tails. All went to show that Cannes offers a wealth of canine screen talent.
