Spike Lee to lead jury of Cannes Film Fesitval - It's been announced that American director Spike Lee will lead the jury of this year's Cannes Film Festival. It's the first time a black person has been selected for the prestigious position. Festival organizers say Cannes wants to send a “message of universality” by naming Lee as jury president. They also said they hope that he shakes things up at the French Riviera gathering of the world's cinema elite. Lee said he was shocked, happy, surprised and proud at being chosen. Many of Lee's provocative films have been shown at Cannes, and his “BlacKkKlansman” won a top prize at Cannes last year. This year's festival runs from May 12-23.
