ANDREA ARNOLD WILL LEAD CANNES CRITICS WEEK JURY


We already know that one maverick female filmmaker will serve as head juror for Cannes 2014's official competition selections - Jane Campion. The Critics Week jury head has now been named, and she too is a maverick female filmmaker: Andrea Arnold, who has twice won the Jury Prize from the festival - in 2006 for Red Road and in 2009 for Fish Tank. I'm a big fan of Andrea's films, so I'm excited to know what choices her jury will make.
