The article presents information about Véronique Cayla, director of National de la Cinématographic (CNC), France's ministry of film. Cayla was appointed managing director of the Festival de Cannes in 2001 when Gilles Jacob moved up to president. She left shortly after the conclusion of this year's event to take over at the CNC, becoming only the second woman to head the august institution following diplomat Catherine Colonna, who held the post for a mere eight months. Cayla says at the top of her agenda at the CNC is to encourage a transfer to digital in the next six to 12 months.
