Cate Blanchett to head 2020 Venice international jury
Blanchett headed the Cannes competition jury in 2018.

Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett is to serve as president of the international jury at the 77th Venice International Film Festival (Sept 2-12).

The announcement comes five months earlier than last year, when Argentinian filmmaker Lucrecia Martel was appointed jury head.

Blanchett will lead a seven-strong jury and assign prizes to features selected in competition, including the coveted Golden Lion for best film – won last year by Todd Phillips’ Joker.

The Carol and Blue Jasmine star headed the Cannes competition jury in 2018, which awarded the Palme d’Or to Japanese film Shoplifters, directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda.
