21st Documentary Summer School
The Documentary Summer School (DSS), which has been active for 20 years now, has its roots in a tradition that ties it inextricably to the Locarno Film Festival and its activities, in particular those of the Locarno Academy. For this reason, the cancellation of the 73rd edition of the Locarno Film Festival in its usual form and the consequent decision of the Locarno Academy to stop and rethink itself have an inevitable impact on the organisation and activities of the Documentary Summer School.
The health situation prevents us from preserving the spirit of our Summer School, based on the encounter between students, teachers, professionals and directors who fill the classrooms with their experiences and animate them through an open and participatory dialogue. We therefore inform you that the 21st edition of the Documentary Summer School 2020 is cancelled.
