With a new director at the helm, the Locarno Film Festival is set to be bigger and better than ever. Its line-up this year consists almost entirely of world premieres and it also has a George Cukor retrospective that will be introduced by Jacqueline Bisset, plus a tribute to Werner Herzog, who will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award there.
The festival runs from August 7 - 17.
