Cineuropa partners up with Festival Scope to present films from the Locarno Film Festival
- From 4 to 20 August, the films from the Filmmakers of the Present section of the Festival will be available free of charge on the online platform
This year in its 70th edition, the Locarno Film Festival is offering film enthusiasts from all over the world the opportunity to see the films from the Filmmakers of the Present section free of charge for the very first time. Just register here by 3 August to be in with a chance of being one of these 400 lucky cinephiles. The films will be available, in their original language and with English subtitles, as soon as the Festival opens, and will be available for a limited period between 4 and 20 August.
Users will have one-time access to each film and the ‘virtual screening’, held in partnership with Cineuropa, will be available on the website Festival Scope or on iPad with Festival Scope Player. At the end of each screening, the user will be asked to evaluate the work of first time directors, one of whom will be awarded the Cinelab Award, a prize that comes with €22,000 in post-production services, courtesy of the Cinelab of Bucharest.
