The Rush star will be joined by director Stéphanie Chuat, producer Andrea Cornwell, and former Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick.

“The Zurich Film Festival, taking place now for the 17th time, presents the most beautiful discoveries every autumn, as well as the most anticipated films of the year. It is a great honour for me to judge the competition entries this year as Jury President together with other colleagues, and I thank Christian Jungen and Elke Mayer for their trust. I am looking forward to ten exciting days of cinema,” said Brühl.

His performance in Rush earned him several award nominations, including the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor, the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actor and the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
