Festival del film Locarno

Piazza Grande

The Locarno Festival comprises a dozen different sections, open to all genres and formats. The famous Piazza Grande presents magical open-air screenings in a totally unique setting to an audience of 8,000 people. The Festival has two competitions for feature films (the International Competition and the Filmmakers of the Present Competition – starting 2010 the latter is dedicated to first and second features), as well as two for short films (Swiss and international, in the Leopards of Tomorrow section). There is also the traditional retrospective (after the Nanni Moretti sidebar in 2008 and the 2009 Manga Impact program, in 2010 it will be dedicated to Ernst Lubitsch, the master of comedy), and the Open Doors co-production lab – this year focused on Central Asia, with its professional dimension and screenings open to the general public.

In addition, the Locarno Festival hosts two independent sections: the stimulating selection of documentaries in Semaine de la critique/Critics’ Week, and Appellations Suisse, a review of the best films produced in Switzerland during the past year.

Finally, every year, numerous special events, exhibitions and round table discussions complement the extensive programme, and of course there are the special awards made to our guests of honour, such as the Leopard of Honour (in 2010 awarded to Swiss film director Alain Tanner), the Excellence Award and the Raimondo Rezzonico Prize that pay tribute, respectively, to exceptional filmmakers, actors and producers.
