Argentinean screenwriter, producer and director Pablo Trapero will head the jury for the Un Certain Regard section at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

The section will be composed of 20 films, still to be announced on April 17 (the Cannes competition titles will be unveiled that day, too).

42-year-old Trapero is no stranger to prestigious international festivals; his first feature, "Mundo Grua," nabbed the Critics Award at Venice in 1999, while his following features, "El Bonaerense," "Leonera," "Carancho" and "Elefante Blanco" have all played Cannes over the past decade.

Last year's Un Certain Regard president was Thomas Vinterberg ("The Hunt").
