Each year, a great number of films are nominated for the various awards presented at the Cannes Film Festival. In order to find the winner each year, a jury must also be selected whose finest task is precisely to make this choice. The jury members are found among a large selection of international filmmakers and artists: actors, screenwriters, directors, etc. These are selected based on their work and the respect of their colleagues from the industry. To lead the jury, a Jury President is selected, who is an internationally recognized and respected film personality.
