This year's jury of the main competition was composed of nine people, headed by Australian film director George Miller.

The other jury members included four females, actress Kirsten Dunst from the United States, producer Katayoon Shahabi from Iran, actress and director Valeria Golino from Italy, and French actress Vanessa Paradis.

At the press conference of the jury after the closing ceremony, Miller said:" it was a wonderful experience, but it was also incredibly rigorous and vigorous. We took longer than most juries".

"This is the result that I think represents our opinion," the head of jury stressed.
