Roth will award the Prix Un Certain Regard along with the other awards on May 26, the day before the festival closes.

Roth directed 1999’s “The War Zone,” which played Cannes, Sundance and Toronto. Acting credits include “The New World,” “Don’t Come Knocking,” “Planet of the Apes,” “Funny Games,” and Allen’s “Everyone Says I Love You.”
