ROME (AP) - Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone will head the jury at the 2011 Rome Film Festival.

Morricone has composed scores for movies including “The Untouchables,” “The Mission” and the Spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” He was nominated for an Academy Award five times and won an Oscar for lifetime achievement in 2007.

Organizers said Tuesday the festival will run from Oct. 27-Nov. 4. It will be the festival’s sixth edition.
