Locarno Festival


For more than 70 years, the Locarno Festival has been transforming Locarno for one long week into the Swiss capital of cinema. With crowds from all across the globe enjoying the Festival, an intoxicating atmosphere is guaranteed throughout cinemas, squares, bars, laRotonda and other special festival venues from morning until late at night.

Don’t miss the opportunity to relax and have fun between the screenings: the entire Ascona-Locarno region with its lake, the rivers, botanical gardens, valleys and mountains will offer you unforgettable moments.
