Cannes Unveils Un Certain Regard Jury

Prizes to be announced Friday May 23

PARIS –Peter Becker, president of Criterion Collection, the world classics home video distributor, and Norway-based actress Maria Bonnevie (“The Banishment,” “Belle du Seigneur”) will form part of Cannes’ 2014 Un Regard Jury.

They will be joined by the French actress Geraldine Pailhas (“Don Juan DeMarco and the Centerfold”) and Senegal’s Moussa Toure, the writer-director-producer, whose immigration drama “La Pirogue” played UN Certain Regard in 2012.

As already announced, Argentina’s Pablo Trapero, a leading voice of the New Argentine Cinema, will serve as the Un Certain Regard jury president.

Un Certain Regard opens Thursday with “Party Girl,” a first feature directorial three-hander from Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis.

The title that receives the top Un Certain Regard Prize will screen Friday May 23 after the section’s closing and awards ceremony which, presided over traditionally by Thierry Fremaux, is a festival highlight, give that the plaudits, which can vary in number and the type of awardee tends to fall on not only celebrated auteurs but up-and-coming names which deserve wider recognition and sometimes near total unknowns, such as last year’s Mexico-based Diego Quemada-Diez, whose “La jaula de oro” won an Un Certain Talent for its lead cast.
