Film festivals

Switzerland is the venue for one of the major international film festivals, held every August in the southern Italian-speaking town Locarno. The main prize is the Golden Leopard.

While it is a forum for productions from around the world, the Locarno International Film Festival also includes a competition for "New Swiss Talents".
