The Award for Best Director ex-aequo was presented by László Nemes and Arnaud Desplechin to Bacalaureat (Graduation) by Cristian Mungiu.

After receiving the Award for Best Director, the winner said: "I want to thank the Jury but also my team because I never work alone. I had excellent actors and an amazing crew. I want to thank my family who gave me a direction in life. I have the impression that auteur cinema has often been relegated to a niche and I am grateful to the Festival de Cannes for making it possible for auteur cinema to exist."
