Get ready for the 65th Festival del Film Locarno which will be held on August 1-11 in Locarno Switzerland.
Locarno is a city in southern Switzerland located on the north of lake Maggiore. It has about 15.000 citizens and the official language is Italian (more from Locarno-wikipedia).
The Locarno International film festival is held every year on August since 1946. In the city’s Piazza Grande an open-air screen is placed so that around 8.000 people can watch the festival’s films. But, only one of them will win the highest prize of the competition which is the Golden Leopard award for best film. Since 2000 president of the festival is Marco Solari (more from Locarno International Film Festival-wikipedia).
