The 2002 Cannes Film Festival started on 15 May and ran until 26 May. The Palme d'Or went to the Polish-French-German-British co-produced film The Pianist directed by Roman Polanski.[3][4][5]

The festival opened with Hollywood Ending, directed by Woody Allen and closed with And Now... Ladies and Gentlemen, directed by Claude Lelouch.[6][7][8][9]

Director Woody Allen was also presented with the inaugural Honorary Palme d'Or given to a director who had achieved a notable body of work but who had never won a competitive Palme d'Or.[10]
