Christoph Waltz, who is on the jury at Cannes this year.
The Cannes Film Festival has revealed the members of Steven Spielberg's 2013 jury: this year, directors dominate. Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin"), Cristian Mungiu (whose "Beyond the Hills" racked up prizes in last year's main competition), Ang Lee ("Life of Pi") and Japanese director Naomi Kawase will all deliberate over the best films in the main competition.

The jury is rounded out by actors Daniel Auteil ("Cache"), Oscar winner Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained"), Nicole Kidman -- whose "Grace of Monaco" will screen footage at Cannes -- and Indian actress Vidya Balan.

In other Cannes news, European Film Promotion announced the lineup for this year's Producers on the Move program, which in its 14th year comprises 29 producers who will gather on the Croisette. The networking platform allows producers to discuss projects of the past, present and future. The lineup includes Viola Prestieri, producer of Paolo Sorrentino's "The Great Beauty," in competition this year, and Andrea Cornwell, who produced the Directors' Fortnight selection "Last Day on Mars."
