Shannon Murphy receives the 2021 Young Talent Award at Cannes WOMEN IN MOTION.

Every year in Cannes, “Women In Motion” pays tribute to a promising female film director through the Young Talent Award. The award is dedicated to celebrating women and advancing gender equality throughout the industry.

Murphy’s award-winning feature directorial debut, 2019 Eliza Scanlen-starrer “Babyteeth,” tells the story of a terminally ill high schooler who falls head over heels for a drug dealer. The critically acclaimed drama landed Murphy a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Best Director. Cannes Film Festival kicked off July 6 and runs through July 17. Just 17 percent of this year’s competition films are directed by women.
