Festival jurors greet the press

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: New Zealand director Jane Campion returned to the scene of her 1993 Palme d'Or triumph on Tuesday (May 13), this time as head of the jury for the 67th Cannes Film Festival. The only woman ever to receive the top Cannes award for her film "The Piano", Campion will head a jury of five women and four men for this year's Cannes festival - its first majority female judging panel since 2009. She succeeds U.S. director Steven Spielberg, who headed the jury last year. Campion, who was born in Wellington and originally studied to be an anthropologist, started making short films in the 1980s and won the top Cannes prize for a short feature in 1986. Her first feature film was "Sweetie" (1989) followed by "An Angel at My Table" (1990) and "The Piano". Other films include "The Portrait of a Lady" (1996) based on the Henry James novel, "Holy Smoke" (1999) and "In the Cut" (2003). Jury members this year include actors Willem Dafoe
