About the films:
The Locarno Film Festival (3-13 August) is one of the most important international film festivals. This year sees it celebrating its 75th birthday and the festival team promises some innovations and surprises for the jubilee edition under the motto of "Locarno75" – up on the screen and on the red carpet. US actor Matt Dillon will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, the Locarno Green Project has been launched with the aim of raising environmental awareness through films.
Over time, numerous Filmstiftung-backed films have premiered on the world-famous Piazza Grande and won awards there. Last year saw the feature film "Monte Verità" celebrating its world premiere in an open-air screening on the Piazza. And Saskia Rosendahl received the "Leopard for Best Actress" for her role in the Filmstiftung-backed production "No One’s With The Calves" (Weydemann Bros.) by Sabrina Sarabi.
