The Festival de Cannes unveiled the list of Cinéfondation and Short Films jurors joining Michel Gondry for the 2011 edition of the event.

Below are the names with bios provided by Cannes:

Julie Gayet, Actress and Producer, France
Julie Gayet began her acting career in "A la belle étoile," three years before winning the Romy Schneider Prize in 1996. Since then she has starred in films directed by Michel Deville, Agnès Varda, Merzak Allouache, Emmanuel Mouret and Patrice Leconte, to name but a few. In 2007, she founded her own production company, Rouge International, which would go on to carry out ambitious projects such as" Fix me" and "Huit fois debout."

Jessica Hausner, Director and Producer, Austria
Having studied at the Filmakademie de Vienne, Jessica’s first short film, "Flora" (1996), was awarded a Léopard d’or in Locarno while her final-year film received special praise from the Cinéfondation Jury at Cannes. Her first two feature films, "Lovely Rita" (2001) and "Hotel" (2004), were selected for the Un Certain Regard section. Her subsequent film, "Lourdes," was invited to compete in Venice in 2009 where it won the FIPRESCI Prize.

Corneliu Porumboiu, Director, Romania
His first short film, "Calatorie la oras" (A Trip to the City) was awarded second prize by the Cinéfondation in 2004.
His first feature film, "12:08 East of Bucharest" won the Caméra d’or at Cannes in 2006. Corneliu returned to Un Certain Regard in 2009 with "Police, Adjective" (FIPRESCI Prize).

João Pedro Rodrigues, Director, Portugal
João Pedro Rodrigues started out as an Assistant Director and Editor. In 1997, his short film, "Parabéns!" (Happy Birthday) won an award at the Venice Mostra. He would appear there again in 2000 with "O Fantasma" (Phantom), his first feature film. In 2005, the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs screened "Odete" (Two Drifters), and then in 2009, "Morrer Como Um Homem" (To Die Like a Man) was selected for Un Certain Regard.
