The Golden Lion for Best Film went to Audrey Diwan’s L’événement (Happening), where French-Romanian actress Anamaria Vartolomei holds the lead role.

It received the award from a jury chaired by Bong Joon Ho and comprised of Saverio Costanzo, Virginie Efira, Cynthia Erivo, Sarah Gadon, Chloé Zhao, and Alexander Nanau, whose documentary about the journalistic investigation that followed the fire at Colectiv club in Bucharest in October 2015 received two Oscar nominations earlier this year.
