The Luxembourg City Film Festival has announced the full line ups of its international jury the week before events are due to kick off for its tenth edition.
Earlier in February, the LuxFilmFest provided a partial announcement of its International Jury. Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis, Radioactive) will preside over the jury, which includes director Mike Newell of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire fame and our own home-grown Luc Schiltz, the star of acclaimed Luxembourgish thriller Capitani.
Announced at a recent press conference, LuxFilmFest has revealed the remaining members of the jury, namely French-Spanish actor Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, known for The Well-Digger's Daughter and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, American director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte (As You Are, Dreamland) and Dutch actor Famke Janssen, known for her roles in X-Men and GoldenEye.
The Luxembourg City Film Festival has also announced the members of its Documentary Jury, which include Kathrin Kohlstedde, the head of programming at the Hamburg Filmfest, Nicolas Girard Deltruct, the general director of the Montréal Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, Anais Emery, the artistic director of Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival, Davide Oberto, the documentary programme director at the Torino Film Festival, and Miroslav Mogorovic, the programme director of Serbia's European Film Festival Palić.
If you want to meet the members of both juries, then you're in look. The Documentary Jury will attend screenings at the beginning of the festival and attend the official opening at Kinepolis Kirchberg on 5 March, whereas the International Jury will attend screenings during the middle of the festival and attend the Awards Night on 14 March.
For more details on the programme, the screenings and more, check out our article and, of course, LuxFilmFest's dedicated website. The Film Festival runs from 5 March to 15 March. Ahead of the film festival's opening, an exhibition has been set up on Place Guillaume II to commemorate the festival's tenth anniversary.
