Pas de deux
A Workshop with Alice Diop

Alice Diop will be the guest of honor at L’immagine e la parola (16-17 March 2024), heralding the return of Locarno’s renowned film workshop, the Spring Academy (16-24 March).

Throughout this immersive ten-day experience, six emerging filmmakers, to be chosen through a global call for entries, will collaborate with a pair of actors on the creation of their own short films. These works will delve into the tensions of contemporary life, firmly placing these concerns at the heart of each project.

The Spring Academy is organised by the Locarno Film Festival and CISA (International Academy of Audiovisual Sciences), in collaboration with the Ticino Film Commission and with the support of RSI and the Hotel du Lac.
