Denis to head Un Certain Regard jury

Sidebar highlights films from lesser known helmers

French helmer-scribe Claire Denis will head Un Certain Regard jury at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival, it was announced today.

Denis has made 20 films, many focussing on social and political themes, since her directorial debut in 1988 with “Chocolat.”

Pic was set in Africa, where she was brought up. It played at Cannes and earned a nomination at the Gallic film awards, the Cesars, the following year.

She later returned to the French Riviera with Un Certain Regard player “J’ai pas sommeil.”

Denis’ latest pic, Isabelle Huppert starrer “White Material,” a politically-charged drama set in Africa, was nommed for a Golden Lion at last year’s Venice fest.

Un Certain Regard highlights promising films from lesser known helmers and experimental fare.

The Cannes Film Festival, set to run May 12-23, will unveil its selection on April 15 in Paris.
