The only news that we have received so far from this upcoming edition is that Steven Spielberg will be the Jury President, job that he accepted in principle two years ago declared Thierry Frémaux. “He was able to make himself available this year to be the new Jury President and when meeting him these last few weeks it has been obvious he’s excited about the job”.
Jane Campion is to head up the Cinéfondation and Short Film Jury of the 66th Festival de Cannes, a position held previously held by Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Michel Gondry, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Martin Scorsese and John Boorman.
