As an event with a rich historic heritage, the Locarno Film Festival naturally keeps alive its gift for welcoming change, even as it looks to the future. Innovation, in the sense of responding to new audiences and changing trends in the media and audiovisual system, is the pathway chosen by the Festival as it seeks to maintain and strengthen its positive impact on the surrounding area and worldwide. That pathway also involves an active involvement of the young generations in dedicated training courses and initiatives.
It’s no coincidence that the initiatives set up in recent years have all aimed to make the Festival an incubator for film and arts projects: creates the conditions for once-in-a-lifetime encounters that can yield original ideas, new collaborations, stunning works and career-defining moments, thanks to the networking between emerging talents and established professionals.
Marking the invitation to Michelangelo Frammartino as guest of honor at L’immagine e la parola (12-13 March 2022), Locarno will again host a film workshop: eight young filmmakers, selected via a worldwide call for entries, will each make a short film based on their reflections on the activation of the viewer’s role in a work of cinema.
The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is the consulting body of the Locarno Film Festival made up of young men and women. It aims not only to bring the event, with its over seventy years of history, closer to the younger generation, but also to give a voice and a space to their thoughts and proposals.
