Deauville taps helmer for jury

Corneau to head French film fest

PARIS — The 31st Deauville Festival of American Film has chosen screenwriter-helmer Alain Corneau (“All the Mornings of the World,” “Fear and Trembling”) to head the jury Sept. 2-11.

The fest’s literary award honors Budd Schulberg, age 92, who is expected to attend.

Scripter, director and sometimes thesp James Toback will be the subject of a retrospective.

Toback’s iconoclastic 1978 pic “Fingers” inspired Jacques Audiard’s recent French remake “The Beat My Heart Skipped.”

A sidebar of classic films about boxing will be capped by the Gallic preem of Ron Howard’s “Cinderella Man.”

The Michel d’Ornano Prize, sponsored by the MPA to encourage a first-time French scripter-helmer, will be given to Karin Albou’s “Little Jerusalem,” about an Orthodox Jewish woman trying to reconcile modern France with ancient behavioral restrictions.
