Emir Kusturica to Head Shanghai Festival

European director Emir Kusturica has been appointed as head of the international jury for the Shanghai International Film Festival (June 11-19.)

The festival last year screened 391 Chinese and international films over a ten day period, putting on 1,275 public screenings.

It also organized markets for finished films and for projects seeking finance and production partners. These are all set to return for the 2016 edition.

Kusturica and the jury will decide on a series of ‘Golden Goblet’ awards for the films in competition.

Previous jury chiefs have included Luc Besson and Danny Boyle.
