One of the oldest festivals in the world, Locarno is also, and always has been, a young festival. Because the cinema it promotes and supports is young, brimming with courage, vision and audacity. And because it is precisely for young people that new and unmissable opportunities have been created in recent years.
Education is one of the main tasks that the Locarno Film Festival sets for itself. Hence the idea of creating a real school for young talents during the days of the Festival, the Locarno Academy, offering the opportunity to learn from the prestigious guests involved in the various editions.
