A message of support for artists in Iran

The Artistic direction of the Locarno Film Festival stands by the Iranian art and film community at a particularly difficult time marked by the violence of repression. We fully endorse the filmmakers' call for cultural institutions to be the voice of Iranian women and the protest that has taken to the streets. The Locarno Film Festival has always supported independent Iranian cinema and will continue to do so in the future. Against all forms of censorship. For full freedom of thought and artistic freedom.
