Applications for Locarno 74 are open
Throughout its 73-year history, the Locarno Film Festival has occupied a unique position in the landscape of the major film festivals. Every August, for eleven days the Swiss-Italian town of Locarno, right in the heart of Europe, becomes the world capital of auteur cinema.
With 11 sections, 3 competitions and 20 awards, quality and variety are key. This is the framework of a Festival that explores cinema from every perspective, to discover in the present the filmmakers and films destined to have a future.
Pardo d’onore Manor, Excellence Award, Premio Raimondo Rezzonico, Vision Award Ticinomoda, Leopard Club Award, Prix du Public UBS, Premio Cinema Ticino, Pardo alla carriera... These are the Festival’s special awards that every year celebrate the personalities who are writing the history of cinema.
Gathering under its wings the different initiatives and services that professionals have been accessing over the years, Locarno Pro aims to enhance and deepen connections between the diverse players circulating around films in the Festival.
