Every Palme d'Or Winning Film

This list includes the periods from 1946-54 and 1964-74 when the highest prize awarded was the "Grand Prix du Festival International du Film". The years the films won the award are in the notes. Some years had multiple winners. The 1939 award was given in retrospect in 2002. There are no awards for 1948, 1950, 1968 or 2020, as the festival was not held in these years, or for 1947.
