Leila Hatami

The Rome Film Festival (November 9-17) announces its jury members for the 2012 edition of the festival, including writer-director Jeff Nichols ("Take Shelter," "Mud"), director Timur Bekmambetov ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer") and Iranian actress Leila Hatami (2012's Foreign-Language Oscar winner "A Separation").

Also on the jury are Italian actress Valentina Cervi, American film critic and fest director Chris Fujiwara, Australian director P.J. Hogan and Argentine writer-director Edgardo Cozarinsky. The group of seven will hand out Golden Marc'Aurelio Awards for Best Film, Director, Actor, Actress, Jury Prize, Screenplay, Technical Contribution and Emerging Actor or Actress.

Additionally, the festival has added two out-of-competition films to its lineup -- Francesco Castellani's refugee football drama "Black Star," and Manuel Pradal's Peter Pan-update "Tom le Cancre."
