Diego Luna and Celine Sallette will sit on the official sidebar's jury.

The final pieces of the Cannes puzzle are coming together as the last of the festival's juries were announced Thursday afternoon.

Diego Luna, whose Blood Father was added to the Official Selection last week, also will take a seat on the Un Certain Regard sidebar jury. That panel will be presided over by actress Marthe Keller.

Celine Sallette, the Cesar-nominated French actress that most recently appeared in Saint Amour, and Swedish director Ruben Ostlund, whose post-avalanche family drama Snow Therapy earned him a BAFTA nomination, will round out the jury.

The prize for the Un Certain Regard sidebar will be selected from the 18 films in competition, which include Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s After the Storm and Matt Ross’ Captain Fantastic.

As previously announced, Japanese director and Cannes Grand Prize and Camera d'Or winner Naomi Kawase will preside over the Cinefondation student films and short films jury.

She will be joined by Canadian actress Marie-Josee Croze (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), French helmer Jean-Marie Larrieu (Peindre ou faire l’amour), Romanian screenwriter Radu Muntean (Tuesday After Christmas, One Floor Below) and Argentinian scribe Santiago Loza (La Paz).

That jury will select the three prizes for the Cinefondation student films, and the winner from the 10 short film titles in official competition.

The Camera d’Or jury — which selects the best first film from all of the eligible entries across the fest including the main competition, Un Certain Regard, Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week sidebars — will be presided over by Catherine Corsini, head of the French Directors Guild. She will be joined by film critic Jean-Christophe Berjon, Titra Film head Isabelle Frilley, Russian producer Alexander Rodnyansky and The Dance of Reality and Wolf Totem cinematographer Jean-Marie Dreujou.

The Cannes Film Festival is set to run May 11-22.
