Shailene’s glamorous appearance comes after her recent interview with InStyle magazine, where she discussed dating and revealed she has trouble letting people set her up and she prefers to meet people organically.

‘I don’t trust anyone. Dating’s hard,’ she said. ‘I mean, I love sex. I love the power of emotional connection via physicality. Who doesn’t? But now I’m only interested in those unexpected impactful connections.’

‘It’s easy to talk about the positive things about love, but love is scary,’ she added.

Shailene also revealed she’s comfortable letting friends and relationships come and go, insisting: ‘Just because you may not be in contact with someone doesn’t mean that impact has any less importance.’    

Maimouna N’Diaye, who has directed documentaries and acted in films such as Otar Iosseliani’s Chasing Butterflies also sit on the panel, alongside two other female directors.

Kelly Reichardt, whose Wendy and Lucy starring Michelle Williams was a contender for Cannes’ Un Certain Regard award in 2008, directed 2016’s Certain Women.

Italy’s Alicia Rohrwacher won best screenplay at Cannes last year for her film Happy as Lazzaro, a satirical fable about a peasant family.
