Locarno Talks la Mobiliare

Beyond cinema: during the eleven days of the event, the Locarno Film Festival wants to be a place of wide-ranging reflection and become a stage for exchanging and debating ideas and perspectives. This desire led in 2017 to the creation, together with the Main Partner la Mobiliare, of Locarno Talks la Mobiliare: a series of encounters with people from the world of art, photography, cinema and music, as well as politics and science. Every year, a number of renowned personalities accept the invitation of the Festival and its Main Partner to engage in a moment of deliberation.

Locarno Talks la Mobiliare at Locarno74 will openly and freely deal with the topic of the long pandemic months that affected everyday life, movies, emotions and the perceptions of ourselves and those who surround us. Now, a year and a half later, do we have a new relationship with the concept of ‘community’? The talk guests will attempt to find an answer.

The motto and at the same time the premise for the talks is “Now – the best place to change the future”. This is embedded in Mobiliar's cultural project Come together, which, in addition to the talks, includes three short films and special cultural experiences at the Rotonda.
