The actresses Lily Gladstone (37) and Eva Green (43) are part of the jury that will decide on the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. This was announced by the festival’s press office. The American Gladstone became known with Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon”, which premiered in Cannes last year. Green became popular with Bernardo Bertolucci’s film “The Dreamers” and many also know her from “James Bond 007: Casino Royale”.

The jury is chaired by director Greta Gerwig (40, “Barbie”). The festival takes place from May 14th to 25th.

Other jury members in the competition include French actor Omar Sy, Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda, Turkish photographer and screenwriter Ebru Ceylan, Lebanese actress and director Nadine Labaki, Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona and Italian actor Pierfrancesco Favino.

This year, 22 films are competing for the festival’s main prize, the Palme d’Or. Among them is US cult director Francis Ford Coppola (85), who is presenting his new film “Megalopolis”. Giorgos Lanthimos is represented with “Kinds of Kindness” – as in its predecessor “Poor Things”, the Greek worked with Emma Stone on it.

The festival opens with “Le deuxième acte”, the new film by French director Quentin Dupieux with Léa Seydoux in a leading role.
