1 day, 5 schools, 25 films, 1 horizon: the Cinema. That's School Without Borders, a whole day on the big screen, dedicated to the works of students from Swiss film schools
For more than ten years the Locarno Film Festival has been promoting a festival dedicated to films made by students from schools linked to the world of audiovisuals, both national and international. The CISA, which has always coordinated the event, has decided this year to invite, in synergy with BaseCamp, Swiss film schools to present a selection of their best short films. Alongside the CISA productions, Locarno74 will also feature short Bachelor (and some Master) films from Zurich's ZHdK, Lausanne's ECAL and Geneva's HEAD, as well as a selection of films from Lucerne's HSLU.
Founded by Pio Bordoni in 1992, is a Professional Education and Training college in the fields of cinema, television and multimedia culture, whose two-year foundation program leads to a federal diploma in Visual Design – Film, followed by a postgraduate year of specialization (in Direction, Cinematography, Sound Design, Editing and Creative Production). This in turn leads to a recognized post-diploma qualification in television and filmmaking. The program will present diploma films made in 2021 and post-diploma short films form the last two years.
The ZHdK (Zurich University of the Arts) has approximately 2,500 students, making it the largest arts university in Switzerland. In the bachelor's program, students learn and experience the making of a film from conception to scree-ning, while in the master's program they deepen their study and practice in fi-ction and documentary filmmaking, screenwriting, camera and photography direction, editing, and creative production.
The ECAL (École cantonale d'art de Lausanne) is a university of art and desi-gn based in Renens. It is affiliated with the Haute École spécialisée de Suisse occidentale. The bachelor's program in cinema is aimed at students who are interested in all genres of film and the moving image (fiction, documentaries, experimental films, communication, television programs, clips and adverti-sing).
The HEAD (École supérieure des Beaux-Arts et de la Haute école d'Arts ap-pliqués) in Geneva draws on a rich cultural and artistic tradition to develop young creativity on a national and international level. During the bachelor's degree in cinema, students discover the diversity between documentary and fiction, exploring hybrid zones between genres and placing an empha-sis on the cinema of the real. The two schools then activate together a ma-ster's course to deepen one of the following areas: directing, writing, editing, sound, production.
The HSLU (Lucerne School of Art and Design) offers bachelor's degree pro-grams related to the disciplines of Fine Arts & Design Education, Visual Communication, Product Design and Film, which are unique. The bachelor's and master's programs in Film, focusing on cross-media platforms and visual storytelling, shine a light on animation and forms of cinematic documentation in the time of the internet and digital displays.
The event will be held under the aegis of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et Télévision), the association that includes the 180 most prestigious film schools in the world, of which CISA, ZHdK, ECAL and HEAD are members.
