Director Bruno Dumont, President of the Caméra d'Or Jury, along with Dennis Hopper, awarded the Caméra d'Or to Hunger by Steve McQueen (UK) presented in Un Certain Regard.
Mr. McQueen responded, "I want to say thank you to the Jury and to the decision-making, and also, it’s one of my great pleasures to receive this from one of my personal heroes, Dennis Hopper. He’s a man who takes chances and I respect that very much. My film Hunger was about the troubles in Northern Ireland during the 1981 hunger strikes. Within the prison, there were prison officers who I identify with and protestors who I identify with. The film is about people in a situation and what these people do. Thank you very much."

A Special Mention was granted to Everyone Will Die But Me by Valeria Gaï Guermanika (Russia), presented in Critics Week. She dedicated the prize to her daughter, "I would like to thank my producer, Igor Tolstunov, my crew, my distributor and Critics’ Week and all of humanity. And especially, I was pregnant throughout the shoot and it is to her that I would like to dedicate my prize, Octavia."
