Throughout its 73 year history, the Locarno Film Festival has occupied a unique position in the landscape of the major film festivals. Every August, for eleven days the Swiss-Italian town of Locarno, right in the heart of Europe, becomes the world capital of auteur cinema. Thousands of film fans and industry professionals meet here every summer to share their thirst for new discoveries and a passion for cinema in all its diversity. The 74th Locarno Film Festival will be held 4-14 August 2021.

In July 2020, Locarno Film Festival launched Heritage Online, a digitally based service dedicated to extending the outreach and distribution of Heritage Films through Video on Demand, expanding the range of titles offered by such services.

Heritage Online offers film professionals a year-round database where streamers (and other buyers) are able to watch available titles, consult their detailed technical information, including availability of films in the various territories, and get in touch directly with rights holders.

Thanks to Heritage Online, rights holders (international sales agents, film libraries, archives, institutes, and restorers’ associations among others) are able to share their catalogues with potential clients: VOD broadcasters from all over the world, ranging from generalist to niche offerings, from established names to emerging start-ups.
