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.
