The likes of Will Smith, Paolo Sorrentino, Jessica Chastain, and much more have brought this annual film festival to closure on Sunday evening by giving away some of the most respected awards in the movie industry.

To count some of the most significant moments, The Beguiled's Sofia Coppola has become the second female filmmaker in the history of Cannes to take home the award for Best Director.
