Kevin Costner and Clive Owen are among the actors in Rome for the annual film festival, which got underway on Thursday night.
Festival goers have the chance to meet Britain's Owen during a “meet the audience” event being held at Rome’s auditorium on Saturday evening.
 
The actor was spotted in the capital on Thursday enjoying an ice-cream with his eldest daughter, Celebritybabyscoop.com reported.
 
The Knick, a film by directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Owen will be screened on Friday night.
 
Costner, who stars in Mike Binder's Black and White, will also give a talk as part of the festival’s “conversation” series with actors and directors, Ansa reported.
 
This year’s line-up of films includes 24 world premieres, such as Aleksey Fedorchenko’s drama Angels Of Revolution and German thriller The Lies of the Victors.
 
English-language screenings include the European premiere of Stephen Daldry’s Trash and Gone Girl, by David Fincher.
 
The prizes this year will be decided by a vote by the viewing public as organizers move to cut costs by doing away with expensive star juries.
 
Under the novel system, festival goers will receive tickets with a code enabling them to vote online for the five main prizes, previously handed out by a committee of industry insiders who had to be fed, watered and lodged over the course of the festival, at considerable expense.
