In short, Gus Van Sant is the winner of both “the Palme d’Or” (Best Picture) and “Best Director” for the film, Elephant.

The “Best Director” award was shared by the Korean director, I m Kwon-taek for Chihwaseon (Strokes of Fire) and the American director, Paul Thomas Anderson for Punch-drunk Love.
