Saturday 28th | Sunday 29th
The first masterclass, organised together with Ticino Film Commission, will be held Saturday 28 March from 1.30 to 4 pm at the PalaCinema in Locarno with the participation of producer Carlo Cresto-Dina, founder of the company Tempesta Film who will be taking center stage to discuss sustainability and environmental issues in the film industry. Tempesta was one of the production concerns behind Alice Rohrwacher’s Le Meraviglie, which won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2014. It was the first production internationally to adopt the EcoMuvi protocol, reducing its carbon footprint by some 5 tons of CO2.
On Sunday 29 March, from 10.30 am to 1 pm, again in the PalaCinema, Alice Rohrwacher will present a session reviewing her filmography and career in film to date. The Italian director will be staying in the Canton until 5 April as tutor of the Workshop I fiori, mentoring eight international filmmakers as they each create a short film on the Ticino region.
Both masterclasses are free and open to participants of international origin, young professionals and film students.
