Locarno Shorts Weeks

3rd Edition
1–28 | 2 | 2021

During the whole month of February 2021, for the third time in a row, the Locarno Shorts Weeks will be an open window to the world – one that we haven’t been able to fully discover in the past year.

The shortest month of the year returns, and so does the Locarno Shorts Weeks project. Once again, February will be filled with shorts: one per day, for 22 days. The third edition of the Locarno Shorts Weeks, the Locarno Film Festival’s off-season event devoted to the short format, is ready to bring back some of the highlights of the Locarno72 lineup.

The Festival will, yet again, shine a light on short cinema, which has been a vital part of Locarno every summer for the past thirty years, thanks to the Pardi di domani section. 

This selection of 22 films is made up from the Pardi di domani, Moving Ahead and Open Doors sections that screened ‘on-site’ in Locarno in 2019. Seen in retrospective, they seem to be talking to us about our current present, and alerting on how could the “new” world look like after 2020.
