1 day, 6 schools, 27 films, 1 horizon: the Cinema. That’s School Without Borders, a whole day on the big screen, dedicated to the works of students from Swiss film schools.

For a dozen years, the Locarno Film Festival has been promoting a review of films made by young filmmakers during their training at national and international film and audiovisual schools. The CISA, academic partner of the Locarno Film Festival, has always coordinated the event by inviting Swiss and international film schools to present a selection of their best short films, for a fruitful exchange between universities and vocational schools from different regions, also working in synergy with the BaseCamp. Recent graduation shorts films from CISA (Locarno), ZHdK (Zurich), HSLU (Lucerne), ECAL (Lausanne) and HEAD (Geneva) will be screened, as well as a selection of essays from USI (Lugano and Mendrisio), and a tribute to CILECT.
