The 67th annual Cannes Film Festival was held from 14 to 25 May 2014.[1] New Zealand film director Jane Campion was the head of the jury for the main competition section.[2] The Palme d'Or was awarded to the Turkish film Winter Sleep directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan.[3][4]

The festival opened with the long delayed Grace of Monaco, directed by Olivier Dahan and starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, which played out of competition.[5][6] The restored 4K version of Sergio Leone's 1964 western A Fistful of Dollars, served as the closing night film.[7][8] Due to European Parliament elections taking place on 25 May 2014, the winner of the Palme d'Or was announced on 24 May, and the winning film in the Un Certain Regard section announced on 23 May.[9] The festival poster featured Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni from Federico Fellini's 1963 film , which was presented in the 1963 Cannes Film Festival's Official Selection, within the Out of Competition section.[10]

The Official Selection of films for the 2014 festival, including the line-up for the Main Competition, was announced on 17 April 2014.[11] French actor Lambert Wilson hosted the opening and closing ceremonies.[12][13]

Winter Sleep became the first Turkish film to win the Palme d'Or since Yol won in 1982. Director Nuri Bilge Ceylan called the win "a great surprise for me" and dedicated the win to the youth of Turkey as the country undergoes political turmoil and to the victims of the Soma mine disaster. Prior to the start of Cannes, Winter Sleep was considered the favorite to win the Palme d'Or, but when it was shown it met with mixed critical reaction.[41] Some found it to be too long (at 3 hours 16 minutes, it was the longest film at the festival) and difficult to finish, while others called it a great revelation. The jury, however, loved the film.[42][41] Jury president Jane Campion said "If I had the guts to be as honest about his characters as this director is, I'd be very proud of myself."[41]

Winter Sleep is the story of Mr. Aydin (played by Haluk Bilginer), a former actor who now runs mountaintop hotel, and his failing marriage. Aydin sees himself as the region's kind ruler, intervening in the business of the towns people below the mountain. In reality, almost everyone, including his wife, dislikes Aydin. He has a pompous column in the local newspaper and is writing a book on history of the Turkish theatre. When the slow season approaches the guests depart, the fighting between Aydin, his wife, his sister who lives with him, and the village people begins. Conversations dominate the film as the inner workings of the characters are slowly revealed.[42]

The runner-up Grand Prix award went to the rite-of-passage drama The Wonders. Julianne Moore won the best actress prize or her portrayal of a demented Hollywood diva in Maps to the Stars. Timothy Spall took the best actor prize for his portrayal of a marine painter in Mr. Turner. Bennett Miller was named as best director for his work on Foxcatcher. The Jury Prize was split between the comedy Mommy and the drama Goodbye to Language.[41]
