Washington (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle will be the leading member of the jury at the Shanghai Film Festival. The Oscar-winner filmmaker told the Xinhua news agency that he had never been on a fest jury before. Boyle also revealed his plans to make a flick in China.

"When you have a city that is full of people and stories like Mumbai, Beijing or Shanghai, it's just so much excitement and potential for a filmmaker. It''s like a dream come true," Variety magazine quoted him as saying. The Shanghai fest, which runs from June 13-21, will include more than 600 features. As many as 200 shorts have already been submitted to the fest committee.
