UMA THURMAN to preside over Cannes Fest’s non-competition program

This afternoon the Cannes Festival, still ensconced in their rue Amélie offices in central Paris, announced that Uma Thurman will preside over this year’s Un Certain Regard jury. The Un Certain Regard (“a certain perspective”) program offers a mishmash of diverse films by known and unknown filmmakers.

Past jury presidents have included Isabella Rossellini and Pablo Trapero.

COMING SOON: the competition jury announcement.
