A Special Place Dedicated to the Youngest Festival Goers


The Festival del fi lm Locarno pays great attention to the comfort of its guests – especially the youngest ones. In partnership with Manor, also this 66th edition meets festival goers’ babysitting needs by providing its Kids Corner, a free of charge day-care service with qualifi ed staff.

Thanks to the toys offered by the Swiss department store chain, children from 1 to 12 years are warmly welcomed and have the opportunity to spend some time with three professionals, that guide them through a series of playful activities, such as drawing, biking and reading. Swimming is also a possibility, due to the installation of two pools.

This special place is located 50 meters from the Auditorium fevi, i.e. right behind the Spazio Cinema Forum, and is open from 10.30 to 12.30 AM and in the afternoon from 1.30 to 6.30 PM, when drinks and snacks are offered. The service is available to everyone during the Festival period, but for no more than two consecutive screenings.

The Kids Corner, moreover, guarantees an evening babysitting service, at home or at the hotel; it is enough to send an e-mail to and book your baby sitter at least 24 hours in advance or call the follow phone number: 0041.(0)
