Helmer Tim Burton will join wife Helena Bonham Carter on the Croisette later this month.
Burton will attend the Cannes Film Festival as a member of its Cinefondation jury, organizers said Tuesday. Bonham Carter is on the fest’s main jury.
The Cinefondation jury, headed by Andrei Konchalovsky, will hand out three prizes to a selection of film school pics showcased at this year’s fest, running May 17-28.
It also will award the Palme d’Or for short film.
