For the last 32 years the Locarno Film Festival's Pardo d’onore has been awarded to one of the most outstanding personalities of cinema ever previous recipients include filmmakers of such stature as Manoel de Oliveira, Bernardo Bertolucci, Ken Loach, Jean-Luc Godard, Abbas Kiarostami, Terry Gilliam, Aleksandr Sokurov, William Friedkin, Alain Tanner, Jia Zhang-ke, Leos Carax, Werner Herzog, Agnès Varda, Michael Cimino, Marco Bellocchio, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jean-Marie Straub, Todd Haynes, Bruno Dumont and, John Waters, John Landis, and in 2022 Kelly Reichardt.
Since 2017, the Pardo d’onore award has been supported by Manor, Main Partner of the Locarno Film Festival.
We regard the Festival’s 75th anniversary not just as a moment when we look back over the years, but also as an opportunity to imagine the future. The decision to pay tribute to Kelly Reichardt, a benchmark for contemporary cinema that is alive and constantly developing, reflects our desire to look ahead, embracing diversity and change. As an expression of U.S. cinema’s inexhaustible capacity for reinventing itself, Kelly Reichardt is perhaps the most exciting filmmaker working today
