Steven Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director, will head the jury of the Cannes FIlm Festival, the festival announced on Thursday.

The 66th Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 15-26 of this year.

The Oscar-winning director, fresh off the success of his epic "Lincoln," said in a prepared statement: “My admiration for the steadfast mission of the Festival to champion the international language of movies is second to none. The most prestigious of its kind, the festival has always established the motion picture as a cross cultural and generational medium.”

Spielberg has been a regular presence at the international film festival over the decades. His first film, "Sugarland Express," was selected for the festival in 1974 and won Best Screenplay.

Gilles Jacob, the president of the festival said in a news release: "I’ve often asked Steven to be Jury President, but he’s always been shooting a film. So when this year I was told 'E.T., phone home,' I understood and immediately replied: 'At last!'"

Here is the official news release:

Steven Spielberg, Jury President of the 66th Festival de Cannes

“My admiration for the steadfast mission of the Festival to champion the international language of movies is second to none. The most prestigious of its kind, the festival has always established the motion picture as a cross cultural and generational medium.”

Taking over the reins from the Italian Nanni Moretti, American director and producer Steven Spielberg agrees to head up the jury of the 66th Cannes Film Festival taking place May 15-26 this year.

“As they say across the Atlantic”, said Gilles Jacob, President of the Festival de Cannes, “Steven Spielberg is a Cannes ‘regular’: Sugarland ExpressColor Purple. But it was with E.T. that I screened as a world premiere in ‘82 that ties were made of the type you never forget. Ever since, I’ve often asked Steven to be Jury President, but he’s always been shooting a film. So when this year I was told “E.T., phone home”, I understood and immediately replied: “At last!”

“Steven Spielberg accepted in principle two years ago”, declared Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Festival. “He was able to make himself available this year to be the new Jury President and when meeting him these last few weeks it has been obvious he’s excited about the job. Because of his films, and the many causes he holds dear, he’s year-in year-out the equal of the very greatest Hollywood filmmakers. We are very proud to count him among us.”

“The memory of my first Cannes Film Festival, nearly 31 years ago with the debut of E.T., is still one of the most vibrant memories of my career, Spielberg goes on. For over six decades, Cannes has served as a platform for extraordinary films to be discovered and introduced to the world for the first time. It is an honor and a privilege to preside over the jury of a festival that proves, again and again, that cinema is the language of the world."

Steven Spielberg was born in Ohio in 1946.

 

 

A film enthusiast from a very young age, one of his first shorts,Amblin – got him through the doors of Universal Television which produced his first films. Success came very quickly: Duel (1971), originally made for television, was so well received that a feature length version was released in theatres.

The first film he made for cinema, Sugarland Express, was selected for the Festival de Cannes in 1974 and won Best Screenplay.

Following these promising auteur debuts, he had a series of international successes: Jaws(1975); Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and E.T. (1982) which was presented as the closing film of the Festival de Cannes and was the very last Festival screening shown in the former Palais Croisette theatre.

In 1993, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, like many of his films, beat all records for box-office takings in the United States: his big budget entertainment movies, of great and varied inspiration, brought about a renewal of the Hollywood entertainment genre, creating new ties with the themes of adventure and sci-fi, and are hugely popular with an extremely wide audience of all ages.

The abundant imagination that characterises Steven Spielberg and has him say of himself “I dream for a living”, is combined with boundless curiosity, a delight in innovation and a virtuoso talent for directing.

Famous for his commercial successes, he also astonishes with his more intimate and socially engaged works which confront audiences head-on: The Color Purple (1986), Empire of the Sun (1987) and Schindler’s List (1993), which brought him the highest accolades as well as a clutch of Oscars, including Best Director.

His filmography is a constant to and fro between dream and reality, switching from entertainment films to serious reflections on history, racism or the human condition, testimony to his hope for a peaceful, reconciled world.

In his 40-year career, he has made 27 films, most of which are important moments in the history of world cinema: everyone has seen, or will one day see Saving Private Ryan (1998),Minority Report (2002), Catch Me If You Can (2002), War of the Worlds (2005), or the recentThe Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (2011), his first film in 3D.

His Lincoln, a captivating portrait of the man who abolished slavery in the United States, is currently a huge success in his own country as well as in France where it has already been seen by over a million people. The film enabled Spielberg to set Daniel Day-Lewis up for his third Oscar as Best Actor (no other actor before having accomplished this feat).

O festival terá em sua abertura O Grande Gatsby, dirigido por Baz Luhrmann, que já abriu o festival em 2001 com Moulin Rouge! Notícia tirada da Vulture.

 

 

The Great Gatsby to Open the Cannes Film Festival
   
a_146x97.jpg

Where last year Cannes went with the humbleMoonrise Kingdom to open the festival, this year they're going in the exact opposite direction: Baz Luhrmann's super-extravagant adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The film is set for a May 10 Stateside release and will appear in Cannes five days later. Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge kicked off the 2001 festival with a massive party. He'll probably take it easy this time, however, since it's not like the source material is famously filled with giant, roaring parties. Oh, wait ...

Muito bom, é um dos que mais quero ver da lista.

 

Aquele que você queria saber a respeito já foi exibido e dividiu bastante as opiniões. Quem gosta gosta mesmo, quem odiou quer tacar fogo. A maioria achou muito louco, bizarro, diferente. Elogios fortes para Robin Wright.

The Congress: hallucinatory and poetic; really quite moving. Robin Wright great. Again. #Cannes2013

IntlCinephileSociety ‏@ICSfilm 11m
Ari Folman's The Congress is a fascinating little mind-bender with a career-defining performance from Robin Wright. #cannes2013

Marc v.d. Klashorst ‏@MarcVDKlashorst 11m
The Congress: philosophical waxing on acid, but with a sense of humor. Multiple viewings required, of possible on drugs.#Cannes2013 @icsfilm

Nick James ‏@filmnickjames 5m
When possibilities are infinite, as in Ari Folman's THE CONGRESS, nothing has any weight: highly inventive sentimental drivel #cannes2013

Transfuge ‏@TRANSFUGE_mag 1m
The Congress by Ari Folman, opening @ fortnight, sci-fi sprawling and ambitious # Cannes2013

maid marion ‏@_maid_marion 1m
The Matrix # Congress is on acid, Robin Wright locked ds Butterfly Ball. # Cannes2013

Viggy Simmons @ ViggySimmons 2m
What genius of using animation to treat a vintage story of anticipation! # TheCongress

Melissa Blanco womanisawoman @ 1m
Take the time to imagine the reaction of Nicole Kidman at the sight of # TheCongress if the film had the honors of the competition.

Adam Woodward ‏@AWLies 16s
Just seen Ari Folman's nuts surrealist think piece THE CONGRESS. A profound, pretentious cartoon odyssey #Cannes2013

Louis Séguin @ mirormagis 59s
The Congress by Ari Folman, opening @ fortnight, sometimes entangled in his remarks, but formally remains very strong.

Joshua M. M_Graysmith @ 1m
The Congress: a fable of between academicism of live action and color flamboyance of its animation.

Emma wore a redChristopher Kane ensemble to the photocall for the film earlier in the day, but changed into a Chanel Couture black and white gown for the red carpet bash.

Emma was joined at all of the events by her costars costars Claire Julien, Katie Chang, and Taissa Farmiga and director Sofia Coppola.

NÃOOOOO!

 

A Emma Watson é fofa e até boa, mas acho exagero essa babação nela, deu sorte de sair de HP e já fazer um com a Coppola, fez o fofinho Vantagens de Ser Invisível, vamos ver seus próximos filmes.

 

Esse ator aí do poster foi o que ganhou ano passado ator?É o vilão de Casino Royale né?Hahaha!
