Lynne Ramsay, Jury member
The British director is a member of the Filmmakers Jury.
A graduate of the National Film and Television School, Lynne Ramsay first captured people's attention with her end-of-studies short film, Small Deaths, which won the Jury Prize for Short Film at the Cannes Film Festival in 1996. Ramsay directed her first feature, Ratcatcher, in 1999. The film was selected for Un Certain Regard and received accolades from film critics and the public alike and went on to win several awards at international film festivals. Her second feature, Morvern Callar, was selected for the 2002 Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won the CICAE (Confédération Internationale des Cinémas d'Art et Essai) Prize and the Youth Prize. Ramsay returned to Cannes in 2011 with her following feature We Need to Talk About Kevin, adapted from the novel by Lionel Shriver, and then again in 2013 with Swimmer, a short film selected by the Directors' Fortnight. In 2013, she was also a member of the jury of the 66th Cannes Film Festival. Steven Spielberg was the jury President.
