Concorso internazionale

The Concorso internazionale features works shown primarily as world premieres, coming from all over the globe and competing for the prestigious Pardo d’oro. Showcasing established auteurs alongside the pleasure of discovery, storytelling and innovation, the Concorso internazionale is an open, inclusive place, which aims to imagine the new territories of cinematic art. This is where the best forms of contemporary cinema converge, in keeping with the history and tradition of the Locarno Film Festival.
