It looks like Ziyi is going to stay a little longer in Toronto this September. The jury for the Platform competition was unveiled today and Ziyi is one of the three jurors.

The Toronto International Film Festival® today announced the jury for Platform, the programme that champions directors’ cinema from around the world. For the programme’s second year, its three-person international jury will be composed of legendary directors Brian De Palma and Mahamat-Saleh Haroun and acclaimed actor Zhang Ziyi. Together, they will award a prize of $25,000 to the best Platform selection, to be announced at the Festival Awards Ceremony on September 18.

Here’s what the director and CEO of TIFF, Piers Handling, had to say about it:

“We are honoured to have De Palma, Haroun, and Zhang on the Platform Jury for the programme’s second year. Each one of them brings a breadth of expertise and experience in visionary filmmaking, artistic direction, and unprecedented, bold narratives,” said Piers Handling, Director and CEO of TIFF. “We are thankful to our esteemed jury for making the time to be here this September to celebrate our renewed commitment to artistically ambitious filmmaking with Platform.”
