Created as a festival aiming to discover new talents and new trends, Locarno has established itself as an invaluable launch-pad for the new generation. It has often spotted the genius of young directors who have then established themselves as the major filmmakers of their generation: examples include Claude Chabrol, Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, Gus Van Sant, etc.

With its magical atmosphere, the Piazza Grande attracts up to 8,000 spectators every night.
