FAQ Covid-19: 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 Screenings, Hub and Lab 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.

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