Pardi di domani 2020 on Tour

8 cities, 8 theaters, 8 dates, 43 films

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the section, the short films from the official Locarno 2020 program are going on tour in Swiss cities. From November 2020 to May 2021, from Winterthur to Bern


As a result of the new Federal regulations in connection with the health emergency, the planned dates for the Pardi di domani on Tour are undergoing changes. First of all the cancellation of the first two dates, originally scheduled for 5 and 7 November, following the cancellation of the Geneva International Film Festival and the Kurzfilmtage-Winterthur screenings. Over the next few days and weeks, we will promptly inform the audience of any changes to the program on this page and on our social media channels.

Three months after the special edition Locarno 2020 – For the Future of Films, which allowed audiences to see the Pardi di domani selection thanks to a twofold programming strategy, online and in Locarno’s movie theaters, the Festival set out to confirm its presence by the film industry’s side, supporting independent theaters and auteurs, and guaranteeing the films even just one night in the place where the artform must live: the cinema.

Hence the idea of Pardi domani 2020 on Tour, a new initiative whereby the Locarno Film Festival aims to theatrically showcase the films it nurtured for eleven days in August, moving them to the heart of the new movie-going season. It’s an initiative that enables audiences and filmmakers to imagine a future where theatrical and digital don’t have to be mutually exclusive, but are better off as allies, expanding the offer to reach an increasingly wide audience. 

But in Locarno, the future is already happening today, and the first stop is Winterthur.
