The Locarno Int’l Film Festival is an annual event which invites thousands of filmmakers and film fans to the city of Locarno in Switzerland.

This year, however, the festival cannot hold physically over the pandemic of coronavirus.

Therefore, it has launched an online event named Locarno 2020-For the Future of Films.
