Kristen has just been announced as an official Jury member at the Cannes Film Festival – this years Festival will run from May 8th – 19th. This is wonderful news, especially since Kristen has became an avid Cannes Festival attendee over the years, premiering many of her movies, as well as becoming the first ever American female Actress to win a César Award in 2015

Who’s excited for more #Cannes Stew ?

via Variety – Filmmakers Ava DuVernay and Denis Villeneuve and actors Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux will serve on the 71st Cannes Film Festival’s jury, whose full lineup was unveiled by festival organizers Tuesday.
Under the presidency of Cate Blanchett, the jury will include five men and four women from seven nationalities and five continents.
Also serving on the jury are Chinese actor Chang Chen, French director Robert Guédiguian, Burundian singer Khadja Nin and Russian director Andrey Zvyagintsev.
While some have criticized the relatively low number of women directors in official competition, Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux told Variety last week that he has been conscious of the gender makeup of the jury.
“For the last four years, I’ve become much more concerned about the presence of women at the festival. I’ve been having discussions with intelligent women like Jessica Chastain and have listened to their advice about ways to improve certain things. We’ve started paying more attention to the gender ratio on our selection committees, for instance. Right now, two out of the three committees have as many women as men.”
