The remainder of the Un Certain Regard jury, which will be presided over by Isabella Rossellini at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, has been announced.
The members of the jury include Saudi Arabian director Haifa Al-Mansour, Lebanese actor-director Nadine Labaki, Greek filmmaker Panos H. Kourtras and French actor Tahar Rahim.
The Un Certain Regard section of the festival was created in 1978 and this year contains 19 films. Last year’s jury president was Argentinian director Pablo Trapper, and the top award went to Kornel Mundrucźo for “White God,” with the Jury Prize going to Ruben Östlund for “Snow Therapy.”
Today, Cannes also announced the jury for the Cinéfondacion and Short Films. The jury includes Joana Hadjithomas from Lebanon, French director Rebecca Zlotowski, Belgian actor Cécile de France, Polish actor Daniel Olbrychinski and president Abderrahmane Sissako. The jury’s task is to award prizes to three of the 18 films made by film school students to be shown as part of the Cinéfondation Selection, and will also name the winner of the Short Film Palme d’Or from among the nine films selected for the competition.
