Uma Thurman and Jude Law to serve on Cannes jury
Hollywood stars Uma Thurman and Jude Law have been named to serve on the Cannes Film Festival jury, organizers said in Paris Tuesday, dpa reported.
Robert De Niro was named in January to serve as jury president.
In addition to US actress Thurman and her British colleague Law, De Niro will be joined by six others, including Argentine actress and producer Martina Gusman, Hong Kong film maker Nansun Shi and Norwegian writer Linn Ullmann, who is the daughter of iconic director Ingmar Berman. Also serving are French film maker Olivier Assayas, Mahamat Saleh Haroun of Chad and Johnny To of Hong Kong.
European films again dominate the selection for the top prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, while only one US filmmaker made the cut and Africa and South America were passed over. Twelve of the 19 films competing for the prestigious Golden Palm come from Europe.
