Festival del film Locarno 2016
A proud supporter of young talents across the broad spectrum of contemporary arts, Swatch has a new partnership with the 69th Festival del film Locarno (3 - 13 August). As Official Partner of the historic festival Swatch reinforces its commitment to supporting emerging talent in the creative arts: the Swiss watchmaker will award the “Swatch First Feature Award” to a young filmmaker.
The Swatch First Feature Award Jury is comprised of three prominent film industry professionals: Chus Martínez, Jonathan Romney and Ryan Werner.
The Swatch First Feature Award will go to an emerging filmmaker whose first feature film is shown at the Festival del film Locarno 2016. Additionally, the First Feature Jury will grant a Special Mention in the form of an invitation for a stay at the artists residence, the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
