    Why The Locarno Film Festival, With A New Boss, Maintains A Unique Presence In the Industry

    Over the past four years, the Locarno Film Festival rapidly increased its global profile in the film festival world for good reason: The program, organized by former Cannes Directors Fortnight head Olivier Pére, appealed to distinct cinephile tastes even while courting an active European marketplace. A number of world premieres at the Swiss gathering, which has taken place in August every year since 1946, eventually screened at bigger fall festivals like Toronto, but at Locarno they were allowed to stand tall: Last year, for instance, the avant garde fishing documentary “Leviathan” was one of the biggest stars in town, even as the festival’s massive outdoor Piazza Grande section screened the likes of “Magic Mike” nearby. The festival managed a very rare mix of highbrow sensibilities and star power, a combination epitomized by the youngish Pére’s charisma and exceptional knowledge of movies.
