Live From Cannes!!! Meet the Jury For Our 2024 Cannes Critics’ Panel

Live From Cannes!!! Meet the Jury For Our 2024 Cannes Critics’ Panel

Except for the pandemic year, we’ve hosted our bi-daily (sometimes tri-daily) Palme d’Or competition Cannes Critics’ Panel since 2011. Over the years, our panel has gained some steadfast members (a few have been with us since the inaugural edition), while we’ve bid farewell to others due to sporadic attendance or missed years. Sadly, we also lost one member permanently. A longstanding Croisette aficionado, Marc-André Lussier from Montreal’s La Presse departed on June 30th — had he been here, he’d have seen all twenty-two films. We was a ninja.

Speaking of Montreal, our proud sponsor this year is my personal favorite purveyor of street grub and the ultimate Palme d’Or of pizza slices in Montreal. Situated not far from the Mile-End, Segreta Pizza Al Taglio & Epicerie Italienne serves up some authentic Roman-style pizza. Make sure to go visit them when you are in Montreal.

Here are the twenty esteemed film critics plucked from a bit worldwide. As always, our critics submit their grades for the competition films at all hours, on the fly, so you’ll want to come back daily to see how our jury assesses the Class of 2024. Here is our army of brave critics below:
