 In > art culture design

Festival directors Gilles Jacob and Thierry Frémaux announced yesterday that Tim Burton is to preside over the 63rd Cannes Film Festival in May (12-23), after Isabelle Huppert in 2009. Upon accepting the invitation, Tim Burton declared: “After spending my early life watching triple features and 48-hour horror movie marathons, I’m finally ready for this.  It’s a great honour and I look forward, with my fellow jurors, to watching some great films from around the world.  When you think of Cannes you think of world cinema.  And as films have always been like dreams to me, this is a dream come true.
The jury and the Official Selection will be announced in mid-April.
