Haggis, who won two Oscars for “Crash” in 2005, Lungin, the Russian director of “The Island,” and Verhoeven, the Dutch master whose latest film, “Elle,” is France’s foreign-language Oscar entry, will be on hand at the festival to deliver masterclasses.

Meanwhile, the jury will comprise Argentinan helmer Lisandro Alonso (“La Jauja), Australian actor Jason Clarke (“All I See is You”), French director Bruno Dumont (“Slack Bay”), Italian actress Jasmine Trinca, Danish director Bille August (“Silent Heart”), Canadian actress Suzanne Clement (“The First, The Last”), emerging French-Indian thesp Kalki Koechlin (“Un + Une) and Moroccan actress Fatima Harandi (“Formatage”).

As previously announced, the Hungarian director Bela Tarr will serve as jury president.

The festival will soon unveil its full program.
