The three strands of the Locarno Academy (Industry, Critics, Filmmakers), the Locarno Film Festival’s training program, are offering online masterclasses, open to the public, featuring some of the participants from the section The Films After Tomorrow (5-15 August). It is an opportunity to discover the world of these filmmakers through a special lens, that of the Locarno Academy community. The young talents themselves will be in charge of the content of the encounters. Through an online creative process, which will precede the masterclasses and be available to the users of the Festival’s website, there will also be a chance to discovers some of these promising figures, all active in various sectors of the international film scene. It is an additional opportunity offered by the Locarno Film Festival to get acquainted with the tendencies and faces of the cinema of tomorrow.
Via this initiative, conceived for the web, the Locarno Academy is aiming to set the stage for new initiatives, with the goal of involving its community in a year-round creative and training activity.
