Otto Preminger on tour



The 65th Festival del film Locarno’s retrospective was dedicated to the Hollywood master of European origin Otto Preminger (1905-1986). Organized in collaboration with the Swiss and French film archives and in partnership with TCM, the Otto Preminger retrospective will be reprised in the fall by both film archives.
The program is now under way at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris. Begun on 30 August, the event comprises film screenings, presentations, discussions and conferences, and will conclude on 8 October.

The Swiss film archive in Lausanne, on the other hand, will present the complete Otto Preminger retrospective in November 2012. The program will be unveiled in the next few weeks on the website of the Cinémathèque Suisse.

The cinema Filmpodium in Zurich will then dedicate a film season to Otto Preminger, from 1 January to 15 February 2013 and TCM, la chaîne du grand cinema, the retrospective’s partner, will dedicate a special evening to the director’s oeuvre on 23 September 2012.

To mark the occasion of the retrospective, Capricci, in conjunction with Festival del film Locarno and the Swiss film archive, published a book in French and English.
