Founded to help develop the abilities of emerging talents, the Locarno Academy is a Locarno Film Festival training project for young directors, professionals, students and film critics.

The Academy was born from a desire to build on Locarno’s attributes as a site of productive encounters, exchange of views and reflection on film, taking full advantage of the Festival’s infrastructure and its numerous guests. The program offers a range of training options, spanning from general film education, training in film criticism for young journalists, to workshops for the upcoming generation of industry professionals and emerging directors working on their first film. A selected group of promising young talents from all over the world are selected and invited to participate in one of the Locarno Academy’s three initiatives: Filmmakers Academy, Critics Academy, and Industry Academy.
