Jane Campion
New Zealand director Jane Campion, whose superb neo-noir "Top of the Lake" series is running on Sundance Channel, will receive the Carrosse d’or at Cannes this year. The Society of Film Directors (SRF) will award her with their prize during the opening ceremony of the 45th Directors' Fortnight (May 16 - 26), a sidebar of the 66th Cannes Film Festival. Winner of the Palme d'Or for 1993's"The Piano," Campion is heading to Cannes next month anyway as head of the shorts jury.

According to CineEuropa, the Carrosse d’or rewards innovation, boldness and intransigence in directing and production. Since 2002, winners include Clint Eastwood, Nanni Moretti, Ousmane Sembene, David Cronenberg, Alain Cavalier, Jim Jarmusch, Agnès Varda, Jafar Panahi and Nuri Bilge Ceylan.
