Mungiu is joined by Chinese director Cao Baoping and screenwriter Li Qiang, American-Macedonian filmmaker Milcho Manchevski, Japanese director Sabu, American producer Gary Michael Walters and Chinese actress Xu Qing. The Golden Goblet Awards will be handed over during a closing ceremony to be held on June 25.
