Yes, we are working on a second edition of the project. However, due to possible restrictions related to the pandemic, there will be a focus with participants from art and film schools in Switzerland. For this reason, no public registrations will be opened.
The Locarno Academy, the Locarno Film Festival's training program aimed at creating a networking platform for young emerging talents in the fields of filmmaking, film criticism and the film industry, will be held this year in Locarno from August 4 to 14.
Given the extraordinary nature of the 74th edition of the Locarno Film Festival, the Filmmakers and Critics Academy decided not to do an open call but to base the selection process on previous and ongoing collaborations.
The Locarno Industry Academy, on the other hand, has opened its applications. Here for more information.
