Andrea Arnold to chair the jury at the International Critics' Week
by Fabien Lemercier
- The British filmmaker will chair the feature-film jury at the International Critics’ Week 2014
For the fourth year in a row, the Grand Prix of the International Critics’ Week, whose 53rd edition will take place from 15-23 May 2014 as part of the 67th Cannes International Film Festival, will be awarded by a jury (and not by the press, as was previously the case). Following Lee Chang-dong, Bertrand Bonello and Miguel Gomes, the chairmanship will this time be assured by British director Andrea Arnold (Red Road [+see also:
film profile], Fish Tank [+see also:
film profile], Wuthering Heights [+see also:
film profile]), who will be joined by four international journalists. Interestingly, the filmmaker herself shot to fame at the Cannes International Critics’ Week in 1998 with her short film Milk.
The selection of the 2014 International Critics’ Week will be unveiled on 21 April.
