The Palm Dog is the longest running and foremost award ceremony, celebrating dog performances on the big screen. Hosted on the Grand Hotel’s beach in Cannes, the event has grown in popularity since its humble beginnings in 2001 and has now become a genuine Cannes institution for film and dog lovers on the last Friday of the annual Riviera film event. The bespoke PALM DOG collar is presented by Toby Rose alongside a jury of leading international film critics for the best performance by a canine (live or animated) or group of canines who feature in a film screened during the Cannes Film Festival.
“The most coveted award each year, Palme d’Or aside, is the Palm Dog, presented to the year’s best pooch performer.” – The Guardian. ...........more
