Scorsese on tap for Rome fest
EmptyROME -- This year's RomaCinemaFest will feature a "new and prestigious" event featuring Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese, Rome's president Goffredo Bettini said Tuesday.
Details about the plans were almost nonexistent, but such collaboration would not be the first between Scorsese and the festival. The director's Oscar-winner "The Departed" premiered at the inaugural edition of the festival last year. This year's festival will take place Oct. 18-27.
