(MENAFN - Arab News) Cannes france: head of the cannes jury jane campion — the only woman ever to win the festival's top prize — on wednesday blamed the lack of women movie makers on 'inherent sexism."

'i think you would have to say that there's some inherent sexism in the industry" the new zealand screenwriter and director told reporters on the first day of the cannes film festival.

'it does feel very undemocratic and women do notice. time and time again we don't get our share of representation" she said adding that men seemed to 'eat all the cake."



campion whose new zealand-set movie 'the piano" about a mute pianist and her daughter won the palme d'or in 1993 is also one of only four women film-makers ever to have been nominated for a best director oscar.

another of the four sofia coppola nominated in 2003 for 'lost in translation" is also on this year's cannes jury.

campion added that there were so few women working in movies that it is 'always a surprise for the world when a woman film-maker does come along you get a more feminine vision."
