Cannes Film Festival Winners Film Budget List Since 2000
As The Cannes Film Festival approaches we decided to take a look back at the winners of the ‘Palme d’Or Award’ since the turn of the century. We have listed the year, film title, director, country of origin in order to review what were the film budgets of each production that the jury selected as the best film of the year.
We wanted to know, is there a correlation between the size of the movie budget and the best film selection? Are lower film budgets preferred to higher cost motion pictures? Did one country dominate that last decade in terms of garnering the most favorite films?

Results: Of the nine years for which film budget data was available the average budget level was determined to be around $13,454,000 (excluding currency fluctuations and utilizing only the current year value of funds.)
While the two films with data unavailable would most likely have pulled down the average, it remains fair to say that the level of production costs associated with the last decade of Palme d’Or winners was at the higher end of the ‘art house’ range.
