“We have a tradition of inviting people who are known to moviegoers but are not necessarily in the cinema. It is important to have people who have a kind of spontaneous opinions, “said Thierry Fremaux.

At just 60 years, Jean Paul Gaultier is a passionate film buff who has repeatedly expressed the wish to be part of this jury. He has repeatedly worked in film, including the creation of costumes for the films of Pedro Almodovar, which gives Fremaux says “legitimacy” to judge the work of filmmakers.

To Raoul Peck, Thierry Fremaux has justified the desire to “bring the chaos of the world” on the Croisette. As for Alexander Payne, he noted that the director of The Descendants embodied a “sort of revival of American cinema”, also present in the selection of the 65th festival.
