Studio Ghibli Awarded With Honorary Palme d'Or

As reported by Comicbook, the organizers of the 2024 Cannes Film Festival will award Studio Ghibli with a historic honor. The company is set to receive an Honorary Palme d'Or at the 2024 festival.


In addition, the award will be bestowed upon a group rather than an individual. Following the announcement, co-creator Toshio Suzuki expressed gratitude for this recognition. "I am truly honored and delighted that the studio is awarded the Honorary Palme d'Or. I would like to thank the Festival de Cannes from the bottom of my heart," Suzuki said in his statement of gratitude.

He also mentioned, "Forty years ago, Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata, and I established Studio Ghibli with the desire to bring high-level, high-quality animation to children and adults of all ages. Today, our films are watched by people all over the world, and many visitors come to the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka, and Ghibli Park to experience the world of our films for themselves."
