‘Parasite’ Director Bong Joon will be the President of Venice Film Festival Jury.

Bong Joon Ho, the Oscar-winning director of “Parasite,” has been named the international jury president for the 78th Annual Venice Film Festival.

This is the first time a Korean filmmaker will lead the jury in the festival’s history, and while Bong Joon’s films have been staples at Cannes, this is his first time attending the Venice Film Festival.

“Venice International Film Festival carries with it a long and varied history, and I’m honored to be woven into its beautiful cinematic tradition,” the director said in a statement.
