Priyanka Chopra has time and again proved her stardom as an international celebrity and now the actress is all set to turn jury member at the renowned Toronto Indian Film Festival. She will be a part of the seven member jury for the Shorts Festival section.
From what we hear, this newly included Shorts section will explore the digital social networking world where participants from across the world are invited to showcase their 60 second films through their Instagram accounts. The jury will not only handpick the best to screen on each day of the 10 day festival but they will also select winners for the Judge’s Choice Award as well as Fan Favourite Award categories which will be announced on August 18. Priyanka Chopra’s co-judges include actor James Franco, cinematographer Ben Richardson, filmmaker Ava DuVernay, Canadian writer-director Xavier Dolan, music video director and photographer Nabil Elderkin and stop-motion animation artist Rachel Ryle. The festival is all set to kick start on September 8.
Priyanka Chopra started her international career as a pop singer and soon shifted her focus to acting with the popular TV series ‘Quantico’ that went on air last year. She will also be debuting in Hollywood with the Dwayne Johnson starrer Baywatch.
