Cannes 2017: Who won the Palme d'Or? Full list of winners

Honours were awarded by jury members including Pedro Almodovar, Jessica Chastain and Will Smith

The 2017 Cannes film festival drew has drawn to a close crowning the best films and performances to have been witnessed by the jury over the past fortnight.

It was a competitive year with emerging reports of several standing ovations for films including The Meyerowitz Stories from director Noah Baumbach and Netflix's Okja despite jury president Pedro Almodovar's throwing the streaming service's programme presence into question.

It was The Square which reigned supreme being awarded the festival's top honour of the Palme d'Or by jury members including Jessica Chastain and Will Smith. From Force Majeure director Ruben Östlund, the film is a satirical comedy starring Dominic West and Elisabeth Moss. Last year's winner was Ken Loach's I, Daniel Blake.

Best Actor was a hotly contested category with the names of underdogs Adam Sandler - for the aforementioned The Myereowitz Stories - and Good Time star Robert Pattinson bandied around. The trophy was eventually snatched in the eleventh by Joaquin Phoenix for his acclaimed role in Lynne Ramsay's film You Were Never Really Here.
