Since 1978, Un Certain Regard composes the heart of the Official Selection with the Competition. Presided over by Isabella Rossellini, the Un Certain Regard Jury is this year exclusively composed of film-makers, directors and actors.

Members of the Jury:
Haifaa Al-Mansour, director (Saudi Arabia)

Nineteen films will be going head to head in Un Certain Regard, which officially opens on Thursday 14th May with a screening of Naomi Kawase’s An (Sweet Red Bean Paste).
Running in parallel to the Competition, the Un Certain Regard selection has its own prizewinners, announced by the Jury on the Debussy Theatre stage on Saturday 23rd May, 2015.
The film awarded the Un Certain Regard Prize will be shown at the end of the Closing Ceremony.
