Thesp to head narrative competition jury of Abu Dhabi fest

Isabella Rossellini will preside the narrative competition jury of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival’s sixth edition, which will run Oct. 11-20.

Abu Dhabi fest executive director Peter Scarlett in a statement praised Rossellini, noting that when she presided over Berlin’s main jury in 2011, the Golden Bear went to Asghar Farhadi’s “A Separation,” which went on to scoop an Abu Dhabi prize, en route to its foreign Oscar nod.
