Cannes Film Festival Finalizes Juries

Cannes has finalized its juries for the upcoming film festival.

After completing the jury panel for the main competition on Monday, Cannes has unveiled the filmmakers and actors who will be judging the Un Certain Regard, Short Films and Cinéfondation, and Camera d’Or sections.

Swiss actress Marthe Keller will serve as president of the Un Certain Regard jury comprised of French thesp Céline Sallette, “Force Majeure” director Ruben Ostlund and Diego Luna. The foursome will judge 18 films and dole out awards on May 21.

Ostlund’s drama won the Un Certain Regard jury prize in 2014, while Luna’s “Blood Father” will play at Cannes this year in the Midnight Screening sidebar.

Naomi Kawase was named president of the Short Films and Cinéfondation jury, which includes actress Marie-Josée Croze, filmmakers Jean-Marie Larrieu and Radu Muntean, and writer-director Santiago Loza.

They will award prizes, including the Short Film Palme d’Or, on May 20 for three of the 18 student films playing in the Cinéfondation section.

Director Catherine Corsini will preside over the Camera d’Or jury, which honors the best first-time feature. Critic Jean-Christophe Berjon, Russian producer Alexander Rodnyansky, Isabelle Frilley and cinematographer Jean-Marie Dreujou round out the jury.
