Thurman joins jury for kids' fest

Uma Thurman is to sit on the jury of the New York International Children's Film Festival for the second year running.

The Oscar-nominated Kill Bill actress and mother-of-two will join Susan Sarandon, Jeffrey Wright and Matthew Modine on the panel for the American kids' festival, following last year's appearance.

Filmmakers Gus Van Sant, James Schamus, John Canemaker, Tomm Moore and seven other industry insiders are set to make up the rest of the jury.

French animation A Monster In Paris will open the 15th anniversary event on March 2, while The Beatles' Yellow Submarine gets its first screening in over 10 years in the States.

The complete festival line-up, which runs for four weeks, will be announced on February 1.

Uma - who will next appear in period piece Bel Ami opposite Robert Pattinson - has been filming romantic comedy Playing The Field with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gerard Butler, and Oliver Stone's Savages alongside her Pulp Fiction co-star John Travolta.
