A few minutes ago organizers announced the award that every year since 1937 honors the best French film and the winner is:
Mystères de Lisbonne (Mysteries of Lisbon), Raoul Ruiz
Raoul Ruiz was in Santiago de Chile and was his producer, Paulo Branco, who received the award from the jury President, Gilles Jacob.
Best First Film award went to Belle Épine (Dear Prudence), Rebecca Zlotowski
The most prestigious French award this year honored a French, Brazil and Portugal co production and yes there are already news dispatches wondering if film was really French or not. Haven't seen it yet, but now becomes must be seen for me, as well as Rebecca Zlotowski's first film.
