Discover all the projects of Locarno 2020

As a meeting point for people who make and work in cinema, the Locarno Film Festival has always been a place for reflection and debate on moving images, their future and their history. That’s why development and promotion of the Festival archive are two key concepts of the Locarno 2020 Projects.

The Films After Tomorrow

The Locarno 2020 initiative to restart cinema

Twenty feature-length projects to be completed, ten international and twelve Swiss filmmakers, two special Pardi, and other awards. And, for the audience, a journey through the Festival’s history with films chosen by the selected directors.


Locarno 2020

Locarno 2020 – For the Future of Films is the edition of the Locarno Film Festival devoted to the support of the film industry in the year of the global health crisis. A new festival concept, which guarantees concrete support for independent auteur cinema through physical and online initiatives. 

Locarno Pro

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.
