Cannes jury announced – movieScope

Following the earlier announcement of Steven Spielberg as president of the Jury for the 66th Festival de Cannes, the rest of the jurors have been revealed, which includes the much-rumoured participation of Nicole Kidman. It is a truly international jury made up of multi-award-winning talent. The jury will select the films to be awarded at the Closing Night Ceremony on 26 May, including the much-coveted Palme d’Or.
