The 71st edition of the Locarno Festival ended on a high note and was crowned with the Pardo d'oro for A LAND IMAGINED by director YEO Siew Hua.

More than 293 screenings in less than two weeks, 18 beneath the sky of Piazza Grande and 15 which competed in the Concorso internazionale. There were numerous magical moments which distinguished the evenings in Piazza Grande along with the special guests who created many precious memories for the audience.

We thank you all for your contribution in making this edition full of emotions and important cinematic contents; for having made it a meeting point in order to share your passion for cinema and at the same time a place for reflection and debate. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the next edition, which will be held from 7 to 17 August 2019.
