One month ago the festival jury announced the entries for this year's "Jin Jue" award.

The other 14 entries come from Denmark, Germany, Brazil, South Korea, Poland, Hungary, Italy, the Czech Republic and Norway. Among them is "The Girl on the Train," the latest film from French director Andre Techine.

During this year's film festival, which runs to June 21, 10 classic movies by Alfred Hitchcock will be aired and six films starring Isabelle Huppert will be screened.

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will be the jury president.

The 15th Shanghai Television Festival will take place from June 8 to June 12.
