American actress Kirsten Dunst and legendary Canadian actor Donald Sutherland are among those that will join president George Miller on the 2016 Cannes Film Festival jury.
Dunst, 33, won the best actress prize at Cannes for “Melancholia” in 2011 and starred in Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette” (2006).
Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, who won the best actor prize four years ago for his performance in “The Hunt”, will also join the panel, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Hungarian director Laszlo Nemes, whose first feature “Son of Saul” was a major surprise last year, winning the fest’s Grand Prize and going on to win the best foreign-language film Oscar, is another celebrity on the jury.
Italian multihyphenate Valeria Golina, probably best known to American audiences for her role in “Rain Man” but known in her native Italy as an actress, director and writer, also will be on the jury.
Iranian producer Katayoon Shahabi will round out the jury.
The festival is set to run May 11-24.
