The Locarno Industry Academy launched in 2014, is an initiative of the Industry Office of Locarno Festival taking place in the context of the Locarno Academy in parallel to the Industry Days.
The Locarno Industry Academy is a training program with strong European and International dimensions, created to help young professionals extend their network in the field of international sales, marketing, distribution (including the new platforms), exhibition and programming (festival, cineclub and cinematheque). The academy gives a unique chance to the young generation to have a better grasp of the industry world and its challenges, get connected with professionals, especially more senior ones attending the festival or/and the Industry Days and, last but not least, fully enjoy the special Locarno Festival experience (including its industry activities).
Since its first edition, the Locarno Industry Academy has grown as an intensive 6-day workshop offered to 10 participants from Switzerland, Europe, the Mediterranean, North America and Latin America where Industry Academies International have been developed with international partners such as Festival de Cine International de Morelia (FICM), Mostra Internacional de Cinema de São Paulo, Thessaloniki IFF, New Directors New Films Festival of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Australab of FICValdivia in Chile.
