The Doha Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from October 26-30, has finalized its jury and film slate. Egyptian actress Yosra has been appointed president of the jury, replacing Hany Abu-Assad, who couldn’t break away from his film The Courier, which is shooting in Louisiana. She’s joined by actress/director Salma Hayek Pinault, British actor/director Nick Moran, Indian director Bhavna Talwar and Bosnian scribe/director Danis Tanovic. They’ll choose the winners of the fest’s Arab Film Competition, film and director, each of which carries a $100,000 prize. The fest has added a bunch of pictures that won’t be up for those prizes. They include: the Andrew Lau-directed Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen; the Robert Rodriguez-directed Machete with Danny Trejo; the John Curran-directed Stone with Robert De Niro and Edward Norton; the Vikramaditya Motwane-directed Indian film Udaan; the George Hickenlooper-directed Casino Jack with Kevin Spacey; the Tod Williams-directed Paranormal Activity 2; and Rakht Charitra, an Indian film directed by Ram Gopal Varma.
