Arab Films at Locarno 2024

The Locarno Film Festival is an annual, international film festival that has taken place in Locarno, Switzerland since 1946. While maybe not as much of a household name as Cannes or Sundance, Locarno is still considered a premiere film festival and their grand prize, the Pardo d'Oro (Golden Leopard), is considered one of the most prestigious in independent cinema. This year they will be showcasing seven Arab films at Locarno, which takes place August 7-17. Concorso
