Joel and Ethan Coen have been selected as Presidents of the Jury for the 68th Cannes Festival, the organizers announced. 
The selection of the brothers, longtime Cannes favorites, marks the first time the jury has been presided over by two people. The organizers have marked 2015 as a year to celebrate the work of "cinema brothers" to coincide with the 120th anniversary of the Lumiere cinematograph invented by brothers Louis and Auguste Lumiere.

Speaking from the set of their current film, Hail Caesar!, starring George Clooney, Josh Brolin and Channing Tatum, the Coens said: "We look forward to returning to Cannes this year. We welcome as always the opportunity to watch movies there from all over the world. Cannes is a festival that has been important to us since the very beginning of our career. Presiding over the Jury is a special honor, since we have never heretofore been president of anything. We will issue further proclamations at the appropriate time."
Beginning with their second film, 1987's Raising Arizona, the Coens have presented nine of their films at Cannes. They won the Palme d'Or in 1991 for Barton Fink; the best director award in 1996 for Fargo and again in 2001 for The Man Who Wasn't There; and, most recently, the Grand Prix in 2013 for Inside Llewyn Davis.
The Cannes Festival this year takes place May 13-24. The lineup for the official selection and the other members of the jury will be unveiled in mid-April.

What a brilliant choice. And so deserved.

Look forward with great anticipation to their presidency of my absolute favourite film fest.

Can Tomorrowland be an entry, if the Coens are Chair?

Why not? Were they involved in any part of it?

I really think Disney  would make TOMORROWLAND's international 
premiere at Cannes. Just like what they did with Cinderella.
Hope to see George on the red carpet there.

My bad.  I thought they were involved with the financial aspect.  Must be confused with someone else.  Sorry.. blush
