‘Moroccan Director Asmae El Moudir Selected for Cannes Film Festival Discussion Panel’

Lebanese filmmaker Nadine Labaki has been announced as a jury member for the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, where she will bring her extensive experience to review works from creatives worldwide. Labaki, known for her film “Capernaum,” was once a laureate at Cannes herself, adding prestige to the festival.

Labaki will not be the only representative from the region on the jury panel, as Moroccan director Asmae El Moudir will also be joining. El Moudir will oversee the Un Certain Regard category, which highlights original storylines, daring features, and emerging talents.

Under Xavier Dolan’s direction, the jury, which includes Maïmouna Doucouré, Vicky Krieps, and Todd McCarthy, will carefully evaluate a selection of films focused on innovation and creativity. Eighteen feature films will compete for honors, with standout entries like “Le Procès du Chien” by Laetitia Dosch, “The Shameless” by Konstantin Bojanov, and “September Says” by Ariane Labed.

As the countdown to the 77th Cannes Film Festival begins, film enthusiasts around the world anticipate an immersive cinematic experience. The festival will showcase a surge in Arab representation, both on stage and as part of the jury, promising a culturally diverse and inclusive celebration of motion pictures on the French Riviera.
