Ruben Östlund

Swedish director Ruben Östlund will head the jury of the 10th edition of the Les Arcs Film Festival in France.

Östlund is the filmmaker behind Force Majeure and the Palme d’Or-winning and Oscar-nominated The Square. Him and his jury will award the festival’s Crystal Arrow, which last year went to Andrew Haigh’s Lean On Pete.

The festival, renamed this year from the Les Arcs ‘European’ Film Festival, takes place in the French ski resort Les Arcs. The 2018 edition will run December 15-22.

This year’s country in focus during Les Arcs will be Poland.
