The 36th Montreal World Film Festival (WFF) will raise its curtains on August 23, and the organizational committee announced that Chinese actor Wang Xueqi would be on the jury, Mtime.com reports.
Other jurors include Italian actress Greta Scacchi from 1984's "Camille", the founder of the Busan Film Festival Kim Dong-ho, French director Véra Belmont, Russian film critic Andrei Plakhov, "Mararía" actress Goya Toledo from Spain and Canadian star Michel Côté.
Three Chinese directors, including Xie Fei ("Black Snow"), Li Qiankuan ("Chongqing Negotiations") and Chen Kaige ("Farewell, My Concubine") attended the Montreal International Film Festival as jurors in the past.
Wang is no stranger to the WFF. "The Big Parade", which cast Wang Xueqi as the lead, garnered a Special Jury Award at the WFF in 1987. "Sunbird", directed by Wang Xueqi, took home the Special Grand Prize Jury award at the 1998 Montreal World Film Festival.
Founded in 1977, the Montreal World Film Festival is one of Canada's oldest international film festivals and the only A-list competitive film festival in North America accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF).
The 36th Montreal World Film Festival will run from August 23 to September 3.
