Korean screenwriter and director Park Chan-wook is to join the 63rd Venice International Film Festival jury in Italy from August 30 to Sept. 9.

Aside from Park, others included in the jury announced yesterday by the festival's board of directors are Spanish director and screenwriter Juan Jose Bigas Luna, Portuguese producer Paulo Branco, American director, producer and screenwriter Cameron Crowe, Russian actress Chulpan Khamatova, and Italian actor and director Michele Placido, and French actress Catherine Deneuve who was nominated jury president last month.

The jury awards the Golden Lion for Best Film, the Silver Lion for Best Director, the Special Jury Prize, the Coppa Volpi for Best Actor, the Coppa Volpi for Best Actress, the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress, the Osella for Best Technical Contribution, and the Osella for Best Screenplay.

Park won three awards at the last year's festival for his revenge trilogy, "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance".

Park also won the Jury Grand Prix for "Old Boy", the second installment of the revenge trilogy, at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

In February, Korean actress Lee Young-ae was chosen as a jury member of the 56th Berlin International Film Festival in Germany.
