Actor, director and producer Robert De Niro will be the President of the Jury of the 64th Cannes Film Festival, due to take place from May 11th to 22th 2011.

Robert De Niro said “The Cannes Film Festival is a rare opportunity for me as it is one of the oldest and one of the best in the world.”

Inviting Robert De Niro as President of the Jury of Cannes, the organizers want to pay also tribute to the co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2011. Robert De Niro, well known for his love of New York, co-founded Manhattan’s Tribeca Film Center in 1989, the Tribeca Film Festival in 2002, which has a sister festival in Doha.
