Covid-19 FAQ: Open Doors 2020

Following the current global health crisis, the Locarno Film Festival will not be taking place in its usual form. However, Locarno 2020 – For the Future of Films will keep offering support to the worldwide film community. Open Doors marries the vision of the 2020 edition by its own definition. 
The Open Doors section is being developed into an online version this year, comprehensive of its different branches, to remain active throughout and beyond the crisis.

The programs of Open Doors Hub (described below) Lab and Screenings will maintain their core objectives and will take place during Locarno 2020 in August.
Their selections will be presented to the professionals and the public starting from early June.

The newer, remote services such as the Consultancy and Hotline initiatives remain as active as ever. 

For any questions, please feel free to contact the OD Team at opendoors@locarnofestival.ch


The program

The Open Doors Hub is an international coproduction platform for 8 selected projects from the South East Asian region and from Mongolia.

The selected project teams will be introduced to European or/and international professionals in order to encourage international collaborations, mostly in terms of coproduction, funding and distribution but also of professional training.

Their six-day tailored made program alternates alternating pitching coaching, group discussions, one-to-one meetings and networking activities with Industry decision makers and Festival guests.

On the last day, a professional jury grants either development, production or post-production support to a few winning projects, the biggest award being the Open Doors Grant amounting to 50.000 CHF.
