Benicio Del Toro to preside over Cannes sidebar jury

Update : 04 Apr 2018, 09:40 PM
Hollywood star Benicio Del Toro is to preside over the Certain Regard section of the Cannes film festival, the organisers said Wednesday. The Puerto Rican-Spanish actor won best actor at Cannes in 2008 for playing Che Guevara in Steven Soderbergh’s two “Che” films. The Certain Regard section is a parallel section of the festival in which 20 “original and different” films compete for the Camera d’Or, or Golden Camera award. Del Toro, 51, who won an Oscar for “Traffic” in 2001, sat on the jury for the main competition of the festival in 2010. Australian actor Cate Blanchett will preside over the main jury this year.
