The Intl. Film Festival Rotterdam has set the jury to select the winners of the three VPRO Tiger Awards from the 14 pics in competition.

On the jury are Pierre Audi, artistic director of the Holland Festival and De Nederlandse Opera; French producer Paulo Branco; South Korean helmer-scribe and former minister of culture Lee Chang-Dong; Argentine producer Martin Rejtman; and Belgium helmer-scribe Patrice Toye.

The previously announced Tiger Awards lineup includes Robert Edwards’ “Land of the Blind” and Kelly Reichardt’s “Old Joy,” both from the U.S. From the Netherlands comes David Lammer’s “Northern Light,” which world preems in competition.

The Hubert Bals Fund has been supplemented by the Hubert Bals Fund Plus! to encourage Dutch bizzers to partner with producers from the developing world. The Nederlands Film Fund has pledged €200,000 ($245,000) to the Plus! Fund.

Some 370 filmmakers are expected to attend this year’s fest, including Jan Svankmajer, Terry Gilliam, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Carlos Reygadas and Japanese lenser Nagasaki Shunichi, whose “Heart, Beating in the Dark” opens the fest today.

In other news, the IFFR has announced it will team with the Holland Festival to run a mini-fest June 15-18 in Amsterdam.
