Spanish Director Juanjo Gimenez Wins Cannes Short Film Palme d’Or

CANNES, France – Spanish director Juanjo Gimenez has won the Short Film Palme d’Or of the 69th Cannes Film Festival on Sunday for his movie “Timecode.”

Gimenez dedicated the award to his team, his family, and Luis Bunuel, the only Spaniard who has a Palme d’Or, which he won back in 1961 for his film “Viridiana.”

“I’m thrilled,” Gimenez told EFE and said that he is excited to receive a prize decided by a jury chaired by Japanese director Naomi Kawase.

“Timecode” tells the story of a relationship between two parking lot security guards.

Gimenez took advantage of the cameras in the parking lot to monitor the place from different points of view to deliver what happens during the boring long working hours of the couple.

The Spanish director said that short films are his favorite genre because they allow him to bring out the best in cinematic language in a way that provides more freedom than that of long motion pictures.
