Cannes’ Critics Week Unveils Jury

French director Valérie Donzelli will preside over the jury of the 55th edition of Cannes’ Critics Week. The jury will comprise four other filmmakers who presented, like her, their first or second films at Critics’ Week since 2011, the year of the sidebar’s 50th anniversary.

The jury will include Alice Winocour, who showed “Augustine” in 2011 and was back at the festival last year with “Disorder” playing at Un Certain Regard; Nadav Lapid, whose sophomore outing “The Kindergarten Teacher” played there in 2014; U.S. helmer David Robert Mitchell, whose pic “It Follows” competed at Critics Week in 2014; and Argentine’s rising director Santiago Mitre, who won last year’s Grand Prize with “Paulina.” Donzelli, meanwhile, opened Critics Week in 2011 with “Declaration of War,” which went on to be one of the most significant French arthouse hits of the last decade. Her latest film, “Marguerite & Julien,” competed in Cannes’s official selection.

The upcoming Critics Week edition will host for the first time a 5 Talents Talks, a workshop consisting of meetings and discussions around its emerging talents.
