The jury for the 68th annual Festival de Cannes, arguably the most prestigious film festival in the world, is set.
They will decide which films are submitted for this year's competition, as well as the winners. The Americans on this year's jury include actor Jake Gyllenhaal and brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, who've worked together as directors, writers and producers on several critically acclaimed films.
The Coen brothers have been nominated for and won several awards at previous Cannes Festivals. Most recently, their 2013 film Inside Llewyn Davis won the Grand Prix prize, which is the second-most prestigious award at the festival.
Rounding out the jury is Spanish actress Rossy de Palma, Malian composer Rokia Traoré, French director and actress Sophie Marceau, and Canadian actor, producer, writer and director Xavier Dolan. This year's festival is set for May 13-24.
