Hudson leads the Intl. jury

The Chairman of the jury for the Intl. Competition at the eighth Tokyo Intl. Film Festival is producer-director Hugh Hudson, who helmed 1981’s Oscar-winner, “Chariots of Fire.”

In leading the jury toward its decision, Hudson says his criteria is that the film “must be powerful and invigorating, and prizes should be given for the best actor or director – not for political reasons, which is often done at festivals.”

Helping Hudson on the jury is Yim Ho, a director from Hong Kong, who won the 1994 Grand Prix here at the Tokyo fest.

Japan’s Academy Award-winning costume designer Emi Wada, also is on the jury.

Jury member Lalo Schifrin is an Argentina-born, four-time Grammy winning composer.

The final juror is Carolco Pictures chairman and veteran Hollywood producer Mario Kassar.

The jury will screen 11 films from around the world and give five awards.
