    Academy Award-winning director, writer, and producer Alejandro G. Iñárritu, the first Latin-American filmmaker to head the Jury of the Festival de Cannes, is one of the most acclaimed filmmakers working today. He made his feature directorial debut at the Cannes Semaine de la Critique in 2000 and was nominated for a Foreign Film Academy Award with Amores Perros. His following credits include 21 Grams; Babel, which garnered seven Oscar nominations and won the Best Director Award at the 2006 Festival de Cannes; and Biutiful, presented in Competition in 2010 at Cannes. Iñárritu took home the prize for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay at the 87th Academy Awards for Birdman. The following year, Iñárritu won his second consecutive Academy Award for Best Director for The Revenant. He is the first Mexican filmmaker to be nominated for either director or producer in the history of the Academy Awards and the first Mexican filmmaker to receive a Best Picture award at Cannes. Most recently, Iñárritu created the VR installation Carne y Arena (Virtually Present, Physically Invisible), which previewed at the 2017 Festival de Cannes as the first VR project ever included in the Official Selection, and garnered Iñárritu his fifth Academy Award, a special Oscar presented to him by the Board of Governors.
