Brit filmmaker Andrea Arnold ("Wuthering Heights," "Fish Tank") will preside over the jury of the 53rd Semaine de la Critique, otherwise known as the Cannes Critics Week. This means she and her jury will award one film of the seven in-competition features with the Nespresso Grand Prize.

Arnold has a personal history with the Semaine, as her short film "Milk" screened as part of its lineup in 1998, essentially launching her career. Meanwhile, her first two features, "Red Road" and "Fish Tank," both nabbed the Jury Prize at Cannes several years later. She is still one of the few women filmmakers to be awarded at the prestigious French festival.

Last year's winning Critics Week film was Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza's "Salvo."

Cannes runs May 14 through 25.
