Live from Cannes: 2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel – Meet the Jury!

Live from Cannes: 2019 Cannes Critics’ Panel – Meet the Jury!

While the competition jury have some major clout in the likes of Iñárritu, Lanthimos, Pawlikowski, Reichardt, Campillo, Alice Rohrwacher,  Elle Fanning, Maimouna N’Diaye, and graphic artistic Enki Bilal, we have our own truly international, gender parity friendly folks readied for what should be a glorious week and a half of movie-watching. Twenty one films. Twelve days. Twenty jury members. Welcome to’s ninth edition of the Cannes Critics’ Panel.

We have a pair of newbies in critics/journalists Leda Galanou and Dubravka Lakic, contributor Tommaso Tocci, some old friends worthy of gold watches and of course, our own Chief Film Critic Nicholas Bell participating. Pedro Almodóvar was our inaugural “winner” (top vote-getter) back in 2011 with La piel que habito and pre-fest he returns with Pain & Glory (which showed in Spain this past March) to be shown on Day 4 of the fest. We’d like to thank our group of twenty folks who help us take the temperature on the Croisette in real time. Stay tuned tomorrow for Jarmusch!
