The Leopards of Locarno
The posters that accompany the Festival’s 68th edition constitute a series of portraits of festival-goers. This photographic project, a concept devised by the Anglo-Swiss agency Jannuzzi Smith, was undertaken during the last edition of the Festival. Every day dozens of festival-goers were photographed: passionate film fans, critics, actors and actresses, directors and all the various categories of professionals who work in the film and festival world.
The brief was to discover and highlight the hidden “leopards” in those attending Locarno. Among the hundreds of photos taken, twenty were selected to represent the 68° Festival del film Locarno.
