The Festival’s long history, the images that have come life on the Piazza Grande screen and in the cinemas over the years, and the people who have brought their stories to Locarno have taught us the importance of passing on the cultural weight of the event.
It is among the Locarno Film Festival’s duties to entrust this knowledge to new generations, so they can be key players in the world and filmmaking of tomorrow.
In a complex media landscape like the current one, the Locarno Film Festival wishes to be a reference point for its future viewers, by giving them all the necessary tools so they can take in the images knowingly and find in them a means to express themselves. For this reason, the past few years have led to the creation of educational programs like Locarno Kids la Mobiliare, the Day of Cinema and the new Atelier du Futur, which offer proper image literacy, as well as a rediscovery of cinema, of the movie theater and of the artform’s cultural and social role.
