ROME — The sixth Rome Film Festival has recruited British helmer-scribes Terence Davies and David Hare, composer Michael Nyman and writer Hanif Kureishi to hold onstage conversations during its Focus U.K. sidebar.

British critic Jonathan Romney will moderate two public panels with these artists.

The U.K. showcase will include the Italo preems of first features by Brit thesps — Paddy Considine’s “Tyrannosaur” and “Wild Bill” by Dexter Fletcher, which recently scooped the Youth Award at San Sebastian.

As previously announced, the Punks & Patriots retro will feature juxtaposed vintage titles representing the U.K.’s rebellious side and its reverence for tradition.

Punks & Patriots will also be the theme of both the fest’s opening event and its eclectic red carpet design, created by the Royal Horticultural Society’s Simon Lycett.

The fest runs Oct. 27-Nov. 4.
