The Jury of Un Certain Regard for the 75th Festival de Cannes

Following British filmmaker Andrea Arnold, Valeria Golino will be the President of the Jury of Un Certain Regard at the 75th Festival de Cannes.

Along with 4 members from Poland (actress Joanna Kulig), Venezuela (actor Édgar Ramírez), the United States (director Debra Granik), and France (singer-songwriter and actor Benjamin Biolay), she will select the winners of this section which celebrates young, auteur and revelation films.

Un Certain Regard will feature 20 films this year, including 8 first films and 9 films by female directors, just as Maryland by Alice Winocour, Montparnasse Bienvenue by Léonor Serraille who won the Caméra d’or and whose new film is in competition, A Brother’s love by Monia Chokri and Good Mother by Hafsia Herzi in 2021.

Last year’s winner of Un Certain Regard was Russian filmmaker Kira Kovalenko’s Unclenching the fists.

 I have been to Cannes so many times, as an actress, as a director, in different selections… It is the event of the month of May. It’s a party, where you reconnect with friends. But it’s also the occasion to reflect: What path did I take? What have others done? What does the cinema say that is universal, inherent to all times and all countries? It is all the more intense within a Jury, where we will feel, think and share together. In this world full of sound and fury, I am happy and honored to be here to help, perhaps, filmmakers to emerge.
