Cannes: ‘Loveless’ Director Andrey Zvyagintsev Joins Jury

The Cannes Film Festival continues to shower the love on “Loveless” director Andrey Zvyagintsev, who has been invited to serve on this year’s jury. Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux revealed Tuesday that he had invited the acclaimed Russian filmmaker to join the panel, which will be presided over by Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett.

Fremaux also told France’s Europe 1 radio that the jury would consist of five women and four men. He did not divulge any of the other names.

Zvyagintsev is a firm Cannes favorite, with four films appearing at the festival in the last 11 years. Three have played in competition: “The Banishment” (2007), “Leviathan” (2014) and “Loveless” (2017). “Elena” (2009) screened in Un Certain Regard.

Fremaux said Zvyagintsev is currently studying English. “He’s taking accelerated English classes because his English was a bit broken,” Fremaux said, adding that having a knowledge of the language was key to “watch[ing] the movies” and discussing them with the other jurors.
