Locarno in Los Angeles

An unprecedented collaboration between Acropolis Cinema, the Locarno Festival, and the Swiss Consulate General of Los Angeles, the inaugural edition of Locarno in Los Angeles will run from April 21-23 at the Downtown Independent cinema. Curated by Acropolis founder Jordan Cronk and co-artistic director Robert Koehler, the festival's main program is comprised of a hand-selected group of films from the 69th Locarno Festival’s Competition, Signs of Life, and Filmmakers of the Present programs, with ten features, all Los Angeles premieres, representing no less than nine different countries. Co-organized with the Swiss Consulate General in Los Angeles as part of a countrywide Swiss Touch event series, the festival will also host two daytime panel discussions featuring a variety of local critics, programmers, and representatives from Acropolis and the Locarno Festival. Along with three evening receptions featuring a selection of Ticino wine and beer, the first Locarno in Los Angeles promises to bring a tantalizing taste of one of the world’s best film festivals to Los Angeles for a one-of-a-kind new event.
