John Waters announced as Venice jury member

John Waters is a member of the international jury for this year’s Venice Biennale. Selected by Biennale Director Bice Curige, Waters and fellow jurors are responsible for awarding this year’s Golden Lion, along with other prizes associated with the event.  When he’s not making trashy films, collecting art, or performing stand-up, Waters teaches ‘Film and subculture’ at the European Graduate School in Switzerland.
