Isabelle Huppert – Madame President

President of the Jury for the 62nd Annual Cannes Film Festival – Isabelle Huppert

The 62nd Annual Cannes Film Festival kicked of today in France. For only the 4th time in its history, the Festival Jury is presided over by a woman, Isabelle Huppert. (Others were Liv Ullmann, Jeanne Moreau and Françoise Sagan).

Huppert, one of France’s most iconic actresses, is no stranger to Cannes – she’s served as Master of Ceremony and Jury Member in previous years and has appeared in countless films both in and out of competition at the festival. Huppert also won the Best Actress prizes at Cannes twice – for her performances in Violette Nozière and in La Pianiste.
