PALM DOG

The winner
Bruno, the pet poodle belonging to the characters played by Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson in The Meyerowitz Stories. The Palm Dog award consists of a citation and a leather collar for the lucky canine.

The Grand Jury prize – the German shepherd Lupo from Lea Mysius’s Ava.

The Dogmanitarian Award, which marks the mutually enriching bonds between humans and canines, went to Lesley Caron, the owner of the 17-year-old Shih Tzu named Tchi Tchi. “Dogs deserve their place on the awards circuit, and I am truly proud to share this award with Tchi Tchi,” Caron declared.

Three security dogs at the Festival were given special jury prizes on behalf of all sniffer dogs for their help in saving lives. “This award salutes all the dogs around the world who are involved in the fight against terrorism,” said British film critic Kate Muir, a Palm Dog jury member.

That’s all, folks!
