For many filmmakers short films are a stepping stone on the way to features, for some they continue to represent a conscious preference in terms of language and expression. Either way, the Pardi di domani section provides the selected directors with a platform to gain credibility on the international scene and lay the foundations for their future projects.
The program includes swiss and international titles, available online and onsite in Locarno and Muralto. The selection committee identifies films that explore new aesthetic, cinematographic and narrative forms or that simply bring an original look at the world.
The Pardi di domani selection committee – made up of Tizian Büchi, Liz Harkman, Stefan Ivančić and Head of selection commitee Charlotte Corchète – picked the following 43 short films.
