Queer Palm 2023


The selection of films has just been announced for the upcoming Queer Palm as part of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival this year.

Along with that, as part of the jury this year there will be Catherine Corsini, Justine Triet, and Monia Chorki with the fabulously talented Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch fame as President of the Jury.

For Queer Palm 2023, there will be 11 feature films and 7 short film formats. Notably already, Anatomy of a Fall by Justine Triet, and The Return, a new film by Catherine Corsini (who was the president of the Queer Palm jury in 2022) about a mother and her two daughters who experience their first emotions during a vacation in Corsica.

Attention will also be geared towards, The Idol, the new series - presented out of competition at the festival - by Sam Levinson, the creator of the series Euphoria.

As a reminder, the last Queer Palm was awarded in 2022 to Joyland, the sublime Pakistani film by Saim Sadiq about the romance between a man in the midst of questioning and a transgender dancer. This year's jury is composed of the versatile John Cameron Michell (Shortbus), director and actress Isabel Sandoval (Brooklyn Secret), actress Louise Chevillotte (À mon seul désir), Belgian filmmaker Zeno Graton (Le Paradis, in theaters May 10) and critic Cédric Succivalli.
