Lebanese and Moroccan directors Nadine Labaki and Laïla Marrakchi to serve on the Marrakech International Film Festival jury.
Marrakech International Film Festival has announced jury members for the 19th edition, which is scheduled to take place from November 11 to 19, 2022.
The international jury will award the Étoile d’Or to one of the 14 first and second feature films in the competition, which is dedicated to the discovery of filmmakers from around the world.
Jury president Paolo Sorrentino is joined by Danish director Susanne Bier, Guatemalan-born US actor and producer Oscar Isaac, British actress Vanessa Kirby, German actress Diane Kruger, Australian director Justin Kurzel, Lebanese director and actress Nadine Labaki, Moroccan director Laïla Marrakchi and French-Algerian actor Tahar Rahim.
This will be a particularly significant edition for Marrakech as it marks the event’s first in-person iteration since 2019 after the pandemic led to its cancellation in 2020 and 2021.
The jury will render its verdict during the closing night of the festival on November 19, 2022.
