You know Cannes is getting close when the jury announcements start to appear. First out of the stable this year is the jury which will cast their eye over the competition shorts, and the student films which comprise the Cinéfondation sidebar. Presiding over the jury will be Belgian director Jean-Pierre Dardenne, a two-time Palme d’Or winner for his films Rosetta (1999) and The Child (2005). Joining Dardenne will be Canadian actress Arsinée Khanjian, Brazilian director Karim Ainouz, French writer Emmanuel Carrere, and Chinese cinematographer Yu Lik-wai.
