[Luxus+ Magazine] 76th Cannes Film Festival : Ruben Östlund named president of the jury

Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund was named today president of the jury of the 76th Cannes Film Festival, which will be held from May 16 to 27, 2023. With an original career, the director’s films have often marked the public and critics. A consecration?

 

A bold choice, but surely not by chance. It was announced today, the Swedish director Ruben Östlund will be the president of the jury of the 76th Cannes Film Festival, to be held from May 16 to 27. He inherits the position fifty years after his compatriot, Ingrid Bergman. But above all, he succeeds Vincent Lindon, the president of the jury of the 75th edition of the Cannes Festival, which had awarded him and his jury the Palme d’Or for his last film, Triangle of Sadness.

 

“I am happy, proud and humbled to be entrusted with the honor of presiding over the Jury of this year’s Cannes Film Festival”, said Ruben Östlund upon the announcement of his appointment. “No other place in the world evokes such a desire for cinema when the curtain rises on a film in competition.”

 

 

Master of satirical cinema and black humor

 

Ruben Östlund is a particular director, often seeking in his films to convey an exacerbated vision of society. This is evident from his first international success, Snow Therapy (2014). In this chilling comedy, the filmmaker films a model Swedish family falling apart. Faced with an avalanche, the father flees at full speed leaving wife and children to face the danger alone. Ruben Östlund shatters the constructed patterns of the protective father and attacks the foundations of Western society.
