Former Talking Heads star David Byrne and director Todd Haynes will join filmmaker Darren Aronofsky among the judges at this year's (11) Venice Film Festival in Italy.
Aronofsky has already been announced as jury head and now his panel has been confirmed.
Joining Byrne and Haynes will be French directors Andre Techine and Mario Martone, and actress Alba Rohrwacher.
Organisers hope to avoid the controversy surrounding last year's (10) film festival, where jury boss Quentin Tarantino was accused of handing out top prizes to friends.
The 68th Venice Film Festival will take place between 31 August (11) and 10 September (11).
