Jury includes four international journalists who will award the Nespresso Grand Prize to one of seven feature films in competition.
British film-maker Andrea Arnold [pictured] will preside over the jury at this year’s Cannes Critics’ Week.
Arnold heads up the jury made up of four international journalists who will award the Nespresso Grand Prize to one of the seven feature films in competition. Last year, the Grand Prize was awarded to Fabio Grassadonia & Antonio Piazza’s Salvo.
“I was so excited when Milk screened in La Semaine de la Critique that I kept crashing into things. When I got home I counted 19 bruises,” commented Arnold.
“I am just as excited about being asked to be President of the Jury of the Nespresso Grand Prize for La Semaine de la Critique and I think it might be a good idea to put away the china.”
Arnold’s Red Road and Fish Tank both won the Jury Prize at Cannes.
