Joint appearance of the regional film sponsors and SRG SSR at the “Notte Svizzera”

The Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft film funding partnership wants to increase its presence at the internationally important Locarno film festival in order to be noticed more in the industry: together with partner organizations from all over Switzerland, it is taking part in the “Notte Svizzera” for the first time.

At the beginning of August, film fans will make a pilgrimage to Locarno when the festival around the “Piazza Grande” returns to its former glory after two years of the pandemic. A broad association of regional film sponsors wants to put Swiss filmmaking in the spotlight. That’s why he created the “Notte Svizzera”.

The Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft film funding partnership is on board along with the Zurich Film Foundation, the Bern Film Fund, the Cinéforom, the “Fondation romande pour le cinéma” and the SRG SSR. The event will take place on August 6th. The aim of “Notte Svizzera” is to join forces in order to make regional film funding more visible to the international film industry and political decision-makers and to network in a targeted manner. The Swiss film should be perceived more in its diversity.
