Among the changes: Michel Hazanavicius' black-and-white silent film "The Artist" will now enter the main competition.

Just one week before the Festival de Cannes kicks off on the Riviera, organizers announced some last-minute additions to the official selection and juries on Wednesday.

Andrey Zvyagintsev's Elena will screen on May 21st at the Un Certain Regard closing ceremonies.

Emir Kusturica's Un Certain Regard Jury will feature French actress Elodie Bouchez, The Guardian critic Peter Bradshaw, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises' Geoffrey Gilmore and Director of Mexico's the Morelia festival Daniela Michel.

Bong Joon-Ho will welcome French critic Daniele Heymann, Hungary's head of Magyar Filmunio Eva Vezer, Cinematographer Robert Alazraki, FICAM's Daniel Colland, French critics syndicat's Alex Masson and director Jacques Maillot to his Camera d'or jury.

The festival de Cannes kicks off on May 11th.
