The 59th Cannes Film Festival was held from 17 May to 28 May 2006. Twenty films from eleven countries were in competition for the Palme d'Or, the President of the Official selection Jury was Wong Kar-wai, the first Chinese director to preside over the jury.[4]

English director Ken Loach won the Palme d'Or with his movie The Wind That Shakes the Barley. Other winners were Pedro Almodóvar (Best Screenplay, Volver) and Alejandro González Iñárritu (Best Director, Babel).[5][6][7][8] This also marked the first time in three years that no American film, actor, actress, or filmmaker won any awards in Cannes.

The festival opened with the premiere screening of The Da Vinci Code, based on the novel by Dan Brown.[9] Journalists gave the film a cool reception at its first press screening, with loud laughter breaking out at one of the pivotal scenes.[10] Transylvania by Tony Gatlif closed the festival. Paris, je t'aime opened the Un Certain Regard section of the festival.[11]
