Filmmaker Lynne Ramsay is returning to the Cannes Film Festival this year as part of the jury that will choose the winner of the coveted Palme d'Or.

She will join stars including Nicole Kidman and Oscar-winning director Ang Lee on the panel at the annual industry bash in the south of France.

Glasgow-born Ramsay was in the running for the top prize herself two years ago when We Need To Talk About Kevin was screened at the festival, but lost out to Terrence Malick's The Tree Of Life.

Other names on the jury, which is headed by Steven Spielberg, include French star Daniel Auteuil and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz.

Ramsay recently hit the headlines after she reportedly failed to show up for work on the western Jane Got A Gun.
