Locarno Film Festival


From to

The Locarno Film Festival in a different way…

Locarno Film Festival is the most significant cinematographic event in Switzerland and among the most important in Europe. Numerous are the movies presented in four different sections: Concorso internazionale, Concorso Cineasti del presente and the sections Pardi di domani (national and international).

Normally the Festival's heart is surely the daily evening projection in the magnificent Piazza Grande, which transforms itself into the "most beautiful movie-theater under the stars".

As we have learned by now, nothing is normal this year - not even the Locarno Film Festival. Even without the daily evening projection, the magic of the film world in the Piazza Grande and its lively surroundings - let yourself be lulled by exciting cinema evenings from 5 to 15 August under the motto "For the Future of Films". PalaCinema, GrandRex and PalaVideo will host competitions and dozens of film screenings. A surprising selection will be shown first.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get to know the region: Ascona-Locarno with its lake, the rivers, botanical gardens, valleys and mountains will offer you unforgettable moments.
