According to Variety, when the Film Festival unveiled its official selection in late July, the ‘unprecedented inclusion of eight female-directed titles within the 18-film roster was heralded as welcome progress for an event that has come under fire in recent years for scarce representation of female filmmakers.’
Cate was chosen to head the jury back in January, making her the third woman in four years to hold the role.
