President of the Jury

A filmmaker from a reinvented time, a craftsman perpetually probing the question of the human condition, tireless seeker of the fundamentals of this world, through his nine feature films, four shorts and one TV movie, Béla Tarr has fashioned a radical and visionary body of work with a fascinating formal beauty. (Rétrospective Béla Tarr, Centre Pompidou 2011)

Jury Members






Actress & Screenwriter France & India
Kalki Koechlin is of French origin and grew up in southern India. She studied theater in London before moving to Bombay to launch her career as an actress. In 2009, she learned Hindi in the space of six months to secure her first screen role in Dev D by Anurag Kashyap. Her smile, and above all her on-screen liberty, which had not been seen before in India, won over audiences and thrust her to forefront of the Indian “New Wave”. 
As the first Western actress to win the hearts of the Indian public, she switched between major Bollywood productions and independent movies, and lately starred in one of the biggest hits in the history of Indian cinema,Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (This Youth is Crazy), which drew more than 18 million admissions.

Lisandro Alonso burst onto the international stage in 2001 with his first, radical film, La Libertad, and quickly became one of the leading figures of the “Nuevo Cine Argentino”. Over five movies, he has built a singular, outlandish body of work, bearing his talent for poetry, metaphysical questioning, and dramaturgy. In 2014, he presented his latest film, Jauja, in the Festival de Cannes sidebar Un Certain Regard. A dreamlike, dazzling, quixotic narrative, this mesmerizing film saw the first collaboration between the director and the world-renowned actor, Viggo Mortensen.
