Andrey Zvyagintsev To Head Shanghai Festival Jury

Andrey Zvyagintsev, Russian director of last year’s Cannes revelation “Leviathan,” has been set as president of the jury at next month’s Shanghai International Film Festival (June 13-21). He will choose among the competition films and decide the
Golden Goblet awards.

Two-time Oscar-winning director Malcolm Clarke and animated film director Ishu Patel will head the juries for the newly-added Golden Goblet Awards for documentary and animation Films.

Born in 1964, Zvyagintsev made a splash with his feature debut The Return at the Venice Film Festival in 2003, winning the highest prize, the Golden Lion. His “The Banishment” premiered at Cannes in 2007, where its star Konstantin Lavronenko won the best actor award, the first-ever for a Russian actor. At Cannes in 2011 Zvyagintsev’s Elena won the Special Jury Prize in the festival’s Un Certain Regard section.
