Film Director Park Chan-wook to Judge at 63rd Venice Film Festival

2006/07/04 | Permalink | Source

Film director Park Chan-wook has been named a juror for the 63rd Venice Film Festival slated for August 30 through September 9.

Other jurors include Spanish film director Juan Jose Bigas Luna, Portuguese producer Paolo Paulo Blanco, American film director/scriptwriter Cameron Crowe, Russian actress Chulpan Khamatova and Italian film director/actor Michele Placido. Headed by actress Catherine Deneuve, who was appointed last month, the jury will choose the winners of the festival's awards.

South Korean filmmakers and actors have been named jurors of the top-three international film festivals this year, including actress Lee Young-ae, who judged at the 56th Berlin International Film Festival in February.

Park won the Cinema of the Future Award, the Young Lion Award and the Best Innovation Award at last year's Venice festival for his movie "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance".
