Do-good film to snare Rome fest prize


ROME -- The second RomaCinemaFest will include a special sidebar event with a prize for a "film that does good," awarded to a feature-length film shown at the festival that carries a positive message.

One of the Rome festival's first collateral prizes -- awards given to films already scheduled to screen rather than those in a specially arranged sidebar event -- the prize will be selected by a jury headed by well-known Italian author and psychologist Chiara Tozzi.
