Cannes film festival: 'We need more women film directors'

Members of the jury for the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or have spoken out over claims of sexism.

Critics have voiced concern that all 22 films in the running were directed my men, many past winners of the award.

But jury member and British director Andrea Arnold said: "I would absolutely hate it if my film was selected because I was a woman.

"I would only want my film to be selected for the right reasons."
