Kim Dong-ho, executive chairman of Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) committe, has been selected as a judge at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Kim was appointed as one of the judges for the "Un Certain Regard" category, which introduces films with various visions and styles from around the world. He will be evaluating a total of 19 films in the section with French filmmaker Claire Denis, the section's head of jury.

The PIFF chairman has served on the jury at numerous international film events over the years including Rotterdam, Fukuoka, Las Palmas, Buenos Aires and Okinawa film festivals.

This year, many Korean films and movie stars have received invites to Cannes; director Lim Sang-soo's "The Housemaid - 2010" and Lee Chang-dong's "Poetry" will be competing for the Palme d'Or prize, while Hong Sang-soo's "Ha Ha Ha" will be presented in "Un Certain Regard".

Korean stars set to grace the red carpet in France include veteran actress Yoon Jung-hee, the heroine of "Poetry", as well as "The Housemaid - 2010" co-stars Seo Woo and Jeon Do-yeon, the latter who is a winner of the fest's best actress award in 2007.

The 63rd Cannes film festival will run from May 12 thru 23.
