31 May 2017 - Freeway Entertainment

Sunday night saw a successful close to the 70th Cannes film festival for clients of Freeway Entertainment, as two of the In Competition titles with Freeway handling the collection account management were recognised at the official awards ceremony at the Lumiere Theatre.

Yorgos Lanthimos's The Killing of a Sacred Deer was jointly awarded Best Screenplay with Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here, whilst Joaquin Phoenix also picked up the award for Best Actor for his performance in Ramsay's critically lauded thriller, which proved popular with critics and sparked a standing ovation at its festival premiere.

Martijn Meerstadt said: “We’re delighted to see both of these titles at Cannes this year receiving awards. Congratulations to everyone involved with these fantastic films on such a magnificent achievement.”
