The Locarno Film Festival launches the “Connect to Reality” trilateral project

The Locarno Film Festival launches the “Connect to Reality” trilateral project
The Locarno Industry Days, a partner of the “Connect to Reality” project

Connect to Reality was born from the desire of three of the biggest Swiss film festivals around: the Locarno Film Festival, the Geneva International Film Festival Tous Ecrans and the Zurich Film Festival, to create a national platform for reflection in which to bring together questions, proposals and hold discussions on the success of Swiss productions at home and abroad.

The trilateral initiative can be considered a natural evolution of the Stepin.ch event, which was launched and developed by the Locarno Film Festival together with the Geneva International Film Festival Tous Ecrans between 2014 and 2016. The aim of Connect to Reality (supported by the Swiss Society of Authors and Suissimage) is to offer Swiss film professionals an effective tool for analysing issues associated with the creation, production and distribution of their films. Locarno will launch the initiative at its Industry Days with a day (5 August) dedicated entirely to the distribution of Swiss films, whilst production will be discussed at the Zurich Summit (2 October) of the Zurich Film Festival, and the topics associated with the processes of creation will be debated at the Geneva Digital Market (7 November) of the Geneva International Film Festival Tous Ecrans. The outcomes of the three events will be gathered together in one joint publication.

Connect to Reality-Locarno is supported by the Federal Office for Culture as part of the measures compensating for Switzerland’s exit from the MEDIA programme, and will feature guests such as Edouard Waintrop (artistic director of Directors’ Fortnight), Klaus Rasmussen (senior sales and acquisitions manager at Global Screen) and Christian Jungen (film historian and critic).
