French actress and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard is the latest addition to a star-studded Morocco Film Festival jury
Oscar Winner Marion Cotillard will join American director Martin Scorsese on this year’s jury for the 13th annual Marrakech Film Festival, which will run 29 November – 7 December.
Besides Scorsese, who was named president of the jury, and Cotillard, the jury is stacked with big names, including Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson, this year’s best director winner at the Cannes Film Festival, Amat Escalante, Cannes regular Paolo Sorrentino, Korean director Park Chan-wook (famous for his film Old Boy), and Turkish director Fatih Akin.
The jury votes on the festival’s top prize, the Golden Star, for best film, as well as the jury prize, best actor and best actress.
The festival will pay tribute to Scandinvaian cinema on 5 December.
The full line-up is expected to be announced later this week.

After adding missing pictures from the years 1998 to 2000 in the public appearance section, I now also added those from 2001 and 2002. Additionally, Sofia has added some rare HQ pics from these years as well. It was the time when she was promoting ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Pretty Things), ‘Une femme piegée‘ and ‘Une affaire privée‘ (A Private Affair). In 2002 she also received her second César nomination (for ‘Les jolies choses‘).

Adding to the good news about ‘Blood Ties’ being added to the Toronto Film Festival line up, it is now ‘The Immigrant’‘s turn to make it to another well known festival in North America. Variety published this morning the line up for the 51st edition of the New York Film Festival, that takes place from September 27 to October 13. Marion’s film, from director James Gray, and which premiered in May this year during the Film Festival in Cannes, is on the main slate list of this year’s event. We will hopefully be seeing a lot of Marion after the summer when promotion for both movies officially begins!
When the line-up for the Toronto Film Festival was announced a while back it was disappointing to see that none of Marion Cotillard’s upcoming films (‘Blood Ties‘ and ‘The Immigrant‘) were on it. Well, the festival has added 22 more films to the line-up, and Guillaume Canet’s ‘Blood Ties‘ is on it. It will have a Gala presentation. The festival runs from September 5-15 and the full schedule will be announced August 20. See the film’s page on the festival website. Marion has attended the festival 3 times in the past, let’s hope her filming schedule allows her to attend this year too.
Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton are presented with BFI Fellowships as “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and Chile’s “No” are also honored.
Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone won best film at a special standalone ceremony on the penultimate evening of this year’s BFI London Film Festival.
It is the first time a best film award has been decided on by a jury from a field of 12 Competition titles.The films were selected by BFI head of exhibition and festival director Clare Stewart together with the fest’s programming team.
The jury, headed by president David Hare — screenwriter, playwright, film and theatre director — also boasted input from: veteran Hong Kong film producer Nansun Shi; Argentine director Pablo Trapero; Victoria Pearman, producer of Crossfire Hurricane and president of Mick Jagger’s Jagged films; and the British actress Romola Garai.
Hare said: “Jacques Audiard has a unique handwriting, made up of music, montage, writing, photography, sound, visual design and acting. He is one of only a very small handful of filmmakers in the world who has mastered, and can integrate, every element of the process to one purpose: making, in Rust and Bone, a film full of heart, violence and love.”
Audiard’s film stars Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts and details the love between a man and a woman who has suffered a terrible accident. It played in Competition during the Festival de Cannes, but walked away from that event empty-handed.
The American Film Institute has announced the Centerpiece Galas and Special Screenings for its annual festival, which will take place from Nov. 1 through 8 in Hollywood, California.
‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is one of the Centerpiece Galas – and it will be featuring A Tribute to Marion Cotillard. Congratulations! It is scheduled for Monday, November 5, 7:30 p.m., at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

Speaking of festivals, I added more pics of Marion Cotillard during the press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.
International Feature Agency have what reads like a full transcript of an official Q&A or press conference. Bits of it have already been used in other articles but it’s definitely an interesting read.
And someone uploaded videos of the full Q&A that took place after the second screening of the movie (view the rest below the cut):
There were many more articles/interviews posted from Toronto International Film Festival (and one belatedly from Telluride Film Festival) over the past few days. Videos are also slowly emerging. Apart from the ones added today there’s a sneak peak of what looks like a great & funny video with Marion Cotillard & Matthias Schoenaerts. Can’t wait for the full version!

After doing some press interviews earlier in the day, Marion Cotillard attended first the ‘Rust and Bone‘ dinner hosted by Moet & Chandon at Michael’s on Simcoe before heading to the actual premiere of the movie held at The Elgin yesterday. More about the dinner over at Toronto Star. And there’s a new poster for the movie – to be used for promotion in the UK.
[edit:] It seems that right now Marion Cotillard is on stage after today’s screening for a Q&A together with Jacques Audiard & Matthias Schoenaerts. And Movieline has posted a spot-on review, they found words to express what I was feeling after seeing it.

We’re being hit with loads of news. The 56th BFI London Film Festival (October 10-21) unveiled their line-up earlier today – and guess what, ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is on it. Not only that, it is also competing in the category Official Competition. There are 12 films in each of the 3 competitive categories. There are 2 screenings:
Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 8:30 PM
Sunday, October 14, 2012 12:30 PM
The festival’s comment to the plot synopsis of the “unpitchable” film is:
That such potentially lurid material is explored with subtlety and emotional complexity is tribute not only to Audiard, but to his extraordinary leads. Marion Cotillard is mesmerising in arguably her most challenging role yet, while up-and-comer Schoenaerts impresses mightily as an apparent lunk suddenly forced to look for his hidden resources. Rust and Bone is as punchy and abrasive as its title suggests – but intensely moving and surprisingly poetic too.
Additionally, Variety reports that Marion herself will be participating in a Screen Talk during the festival.
