A top-level conversation with the professionals

For the upcoming generations, Locarno Pro’s Academy is a unique opportunity to discover and learn more about the world of the film industry and its challenges. The keynotes for the 2018 edition are collaboration and creativity.

The 10 selected participants work in the fields of traditional and digital distribution, management, international sales, festivals and marketing. They come from France, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland and Russia, and have all followed unusual pathways which testify to their passion for cinema.

The Industry Academy will offer them not only a perfect opportunity to interact with a group of top-level professionals, but also to quiz the experts and enhance their own hands-on professional experience, while gaining insights into the work of their colleagues.
