PARIS — Veronique Cayla’s appointment as managing director of the Centre National de la Cinematographie, the body that regulates France’s TV and film industries, was rubber-stamped Wednesday (Daily Variety, June 21).

Cayla, who had been managing director of the Cannes Film Festival for the past 4½ years, also will be interim president of Gaul’s Femis film school.

Announcement was made by the Elysee Palace, the office of President Jacques Chirac, following Cayla’s nomination by a council of ministers.

Cayla, 54, has held a variety of cultural admin posts in France in the public and private sectors.

She created the Videotheque de Paris and was a member of France’s Broadcasting Authority before joining the Cannes Film Festival.

The festival is deciding how to fill Cayla’s shoes, and has made no comment on her departure.
