Premio Raimondo Rezzonico
From its inception until the present day, cinema could not have surprised us so much without the courage, audacity and prescient gaze of those who have chosen to support freethinking and visionary projects. This is why, since 2002, the Locarno Film Festival has awarded the Raimondo Rezzonico Prize to figures who have played a major role in independent production.
The award ceremony, held in the prestigious setting of Piazza Grande, is paired with a program of representative titles from the careers of the past awardeed, as well as occasions during which the public is invited to delve more deeply into their work. In recent years, thanks to the awards given to Mike Medavoy, Arnon Milchan, Jeremy Thomas, Ted Hope and many more, a journey has been undertaken among the most innovative realities of international production. A journey that will resume its course during the 2021 edition, with the new Raimondo Rezzonico prize: who will receive it?
