Bekmambetov joins Rome jury

Fest adds 'Black Star,' 'Tom Le Cancre' to lineup

ROME

The Rome Film Festival has announced its full jury roster, comprising Russian helmer Timur Bekmambetov (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”), and also added two titles to its lineup.

U.S. critic and Edinburgh fest topper Chris Fujiwara; Aussie helmer P.J. Hogan; Argentinian auteur Edgardo Cozarinsky; Italian actress Valentina Cervi; and Iranian actress Leila Hatami round off the Rome jury.

Rome jury prexy is U.S. helmer Jeff Nichols (“Mud”), as previously announced.

“Black Star,” a docudrama by first-time helmer Francesco Castellani, about a Rome soccer team whose members are all political refugees, and “Tom Le Cancre,” a rite-of-passage pic, helmed by Gaul’s Manuel Pradal, involving children wandering in a strange forest, are the two Rome additions, both out-of-competish.

Fest runs Nov. 9-17.
