We have interviewed Pardo d’oro winners, guests, directors, actresses, film icons and young talents. We have recounted the Festival days and the behind-the-scenes of the machine that has been igniting cinema in the city for over 70 years.
We have captured every Piazza Grande night, every instant, every red carpet, every golden signature by those who have enriched our history with their names and stories. We have stolen smiles and tears, laughter and emotion, applause and ovations. We have listened to stories, recounted ideas and collected thoughts. We have learned and loved. Basically, every year we have tried to sum up that amazing mixture of films, feelings and interviews that make up the Locarno Film Festival. And this is only the beginning.

BONG Joon-ho writes his films with SONG Kang-ho in mind, and SONG never says no to BONG because he knows it will be a fun experience. They've made four films together: Parasite, Snowpiercer, The Host and Memories of Murder.
He locked himself inside a cockpit and didn't move from there. Or rather, Patrick Vollrath locked him in there and he remained in position, for a month of shooting and an hour and a half of running time. Was it easy? No. However, Joseph Gordon-Levitt pulled it off, he stayed in there, learned every comma of aviation talk and, without moving, kept viewers glued to their seats. Piazza Grande is ready to greet the few square feet of 7500, by Patrick Vollrath. With Sir Joseph manning the plane.
It was one of the most cinematic and enriching encounters of the last few years. It was 2015, and Walter Murch, the recipient of Locarno68's Vision Award, used his craft, knowledge and intelligence to take us back to the places of cinema, of his own filmmaking, and the first place par excellence: the mother's womb.
