  • Kirsten Dunst and Donald Sutherland Round off the Cannes Film Festival Jury

Kirsten Dunst and Donald Sutherland will be two of the 9 members of the Cannes Film Festival jury that will decide all the major awards from the showcase of movies.

Cannes Film Festival is among one of the most prestigious festivals around the world. Showcasing the films made around the world, the movie has been responsible for picking and crowning some of the best work in the cinematic world.

Be it a documentary, a fictional feature or an autobiography. The Cannes Film Festival picks out a Best Actor, Best Actress Best Director, and the Palme d’Or as the highest honor. 

So how do they pick the winners for these awards? Every year, the festival director picks a jury that is affiliated with the cinematic world. Traditionally, people who have already participated in the Cannes Film Festival are the favorites to be chosen for this honor. 

 George Miller was confirmed earlier as one of the members this year on the jury panel with the recent addition of Donald Sutherland. These men will be joined by actress Kirsten Dunst who was featured in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette in 2006 and won the Best Actress honors in 2011 for her role in Melancholia.

Danish actor, Mads Mikkelsen who was also a winner on Cannes for his performance in The Hunt will also be sitting on the jury this year. Also joining these people is the winner of last year’s feature Son of Saul, Hungarian director Laszlo Nemes.

The movie later on won the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Italian multi-hyphenate Valeria Golina, probably best known to American audiences for her role in Rain Man will also be on the Cannes jury joined by French actress Vanessa Paradis. Arnaud Desplechin, the Cesar-winning French filmmaker and Iranian producer Katayoon Shahabi will round out the jury.
