Los Angeles: The Killers of the Flower Moon breakout Lily Gladstone, Palme d'Or-winning Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda, and French stars Eva Green and Omar Sy on Monday were announced among the members of the 77th Cannes Film Festival Competition jury panel, headed by Barbie filmmaker Greta Gerwig.

According to the festival website, the nine-member jury will also include Turkish screenwriter and photographer Ebru Ceylan (co-writer of 2014 Palme d'Or winner Winter Sleep), Lebanese director and screenwriter Nadine Labaki of Capernaum fame, Society of the Snow director Juan Antonio Bayona from Spain, and Italian actor Pierfrancisco Favino.

With Gerwig at the helm, the panel comprises five women and four men.

The American filmmaker will award the Palme d'Or, the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, to one of the 22 films in Competition at the closing ceremony on May 25.

Francis Ford Coppola's passion project Megalopolis, Yorgos Lanthimos' Kinds of Kindness, David Cronenberg's The Shrouds, Ali Abbasi's The Apprentice, and All We Imagine As Light, directed by Payal Kapadia are some of the films in the race for the top honour.

Justine Triet's courtroom drama Anatomy of a Fall, fronted by Sandra Huller, was last year's Palme d'Or winner.

Cannes Film Festival 2024 will open on May 14 with The Second Act, a surreal comedy from French director Quentin Dupieux and starring Lea Seydoux and Vincent Lindon.
