First Look on Portuguese Cinema
August 3 - 5, 2018
Locarno Festival’s work in progress section will focus on Portuguese Cinema showcasing not yet completed films, for an audience of professionals attending Locarno.
Thanks to a great partnership with the ICA – Instituto do Cinema e do Audiovisual, Locarno Festival will select from 5 to 7 films in post-production stage and with no sales agent attached to be screened to an audience of Buyers, Festival Programmers, Post-Production support funds representatives and Sales Agents attending Locarno. The aim is to start the films’ international career and help their completion, enhancing a dialogue between the professionals and the producers, who will introduce each work in progress briefly before each screening.
This year’s Jury is composed by José Luis Rebordinos (San Sebastian Film Festival’s Artistic Director), Janet Pierson (SXSW Film Head) and Eva Sangiorgi (Viennale’s Artistic Director) and will assign the First Look award offered by Cinelab Bucharest that consists in post-production services in the value of 65.000 €, the Le Film Français’ award for advertising services in the value of 5.600,00 € and the Kaiju Design award (the designing of the international key art poster) valued 5.000,00 €.
First Look, Locarno Pro’s initiative of Locarno Festival, has reached the eighth edition and will be from 3th to 5th August 2018. The full list of selected Work In Progress will be announced by the end of July 2018.
