The 2017 Cannes Film Festival jury will include Park Chan-wook (“The Handmaiden”), Maren Ade (“Toni Erdmann”), Paolo Sorrentino (“The Great Beauty”), and Will Smith (“Collateral Beauty”). Previously announced jury president Pedro Almodovar and juror Jessica Chastain are joined by a prestigious group of Hollywood A-listers, celebrated auteur directors, and other top talents from the international film community.
