Steven Spielberg to Head Cannes Film Festival Jury

Three days after losing the Best Director Oscar for Lincoln to Ang Lee (for Life of Pi), it has been reported that Steven Spielberg will head the film jury at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, running from May 15th-26th.  The famed filmmaker has been to Cannes before-- Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull screened out of competition in 2008, as did E.T. and The Color Purple; he shared the Screenplay prize for his 1974 film The Sugarland Express.

“It is an honour and a privilege to preside over the jury of a festival that proves, again and again, that cinema is the language of the world"
