Léopards de demain

Cette section de la Compétition Officielle du Festival de Locarno offre une place de choix à des courts-métrages suisses et internationaux.

Seules les oeuvres des jeunes cinéastes suisses concourent pour le Prix Action Light.

Extrait du site officiel:
"An arena for revelation and discovery, which welcomed the very first films made by Fatih Akin, Barbara Albert, Paul Thomas Anderson, Laurent Cantet, François Ozon, Andrea Staka, Roberta Torre and so many others, this competitive short film section screens works (maximum running time 40 minutes), whose directors have not yet made feature films. 

Every year the section has two competitions: one is international, open to films from all over the world, the other is traditionally devoted to films by young Swiss filmmakers.

The winning films in both competitions are eligible for pre-selection by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Short Films Awards (Oscars©). Furthermore, European short films will also compete for a nomination to the European Short Film Awards."
