Robert De Niro will be Cannes Film Festival 2011 Jury President
Robert "are you talking to me?" De Niro will lead the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Jury. De Niro - who was involved in two "Golden Palm" winning movies ("Taxi Driver" and "The Mission") - is no stranger to the Film festival business - in 2002, he founded the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in an effort to re-animate lower Manhattan after the devastating 9/11 attacks.
