Polley on Cannes jury

Sarah PolleySarah Polley, who made her feature directing debut with the currently-playing Away From Her, has been chosen to sit on the nine-member competition jury at the Cannes Film festival this year. Polley, 28, who began acting in films at the age of four, told the Toronto Star: “It’s the best job on Earth. The idea that you actually get to go to a film festival and enjoy it! I’ve never even considered that. I usually go to film festivals and for two days do interviews in hotel rooms. The idea of actually getting to see what’s at the Cannes Film Festival is really appealing to me. This feels like it will be my first time experiencing Cannes, even though it’s my fourth time here.”
