Concorso Cineasti del Presente

First or second feature films are a chance to make a mark, mix things up, find a voice. Where at the Locarno Film Festival can you find those films? That’s Concorso Cineasti del Presente, the space for the filmmakers of the present and the cinema of tomorrow, existing beyond all distinctions of form and genre. Radical, uncompromising, adventurous, shot through with genuine curiosity about all the possibilities of cinema. Collectively, the films in Concorso Cineasti del Presente, showing in international or world premieres, chart a course for the future.
