Quentin Tarantino Named Cannes Jury Head

Friday February 13 3:53 PM ET



American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will preside over the jury at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, organizers said Friday.



Tarantino’s celebrated crime romp “Pulp Fiction” won the festival’s top honor the Palme d’Or in 1994. His earlier cult classic “Reservoir Dogs” was nominated for the festival’s top prize in 1992.



“For a filmmaker and film lover, there’s no greater honor than to be on the jury of the Cannes Film Festival,” Tarantino said in a statement issued by the festival’s organizers.



To be president of the jury, the 40-year-old Tarantino said, was "the crowning achievement of a lifetime spent in cinematic obsession a magnificent obsession."



Tarantino’s latest film, “Kill Bill Vol. 1,” an ultra-violent vengeance flick, was released in the United States in October after a six-year hiatus for the filmmaker. The next chapter: “Kill Bill Vol. 2” was due for release later this month, completing a saga that began on the “Pulp Fiction” shoot 10 years ago.



Tarantino succeeds last year’s jury president Patrice Cheraud for the festival running from May 12-23.
