The Cannes Film Festival has announced that actress Leila Bekhti, director-producer Tonie Marshall, journalist Luciano Monteagudo and programmer Sylvie Pras have been selected as the Un Certain Regard jury, joining previously announced panel president Tim Roth.

The jury will announce its awards during May 26 ceremonies from among the 20 films in Un Certain Regard Selection.

The opening film, to be screened Thursday, is “Mystery” by Chinese director Lou Ye. The closing film is “Renoir” by French director Gilles Bourdos.
