Huppert to head Cannes jury

Festival to unspool May 13 - 24

French actress Isabelle Huppert will serve as jury president of the 62nd Festival du Cannes.

“I am very glad and very proud,” said Huppert. “I’ve had a long relationship with Cannes and this next meeting will definitely seal my love for the Festival and thus for global cinema.”

Over the years, Huppert has come to the festival more than twenty five times — as an awards presenter, jury member, symposium head, and with films in or out of competition. She won Best Actress at the fest for “The Piano Teacher” (2001) and “Violette Noziere” (1978).

Cannes fest will unspool May 13-24, 2009.
