Texts by Davide Abbatescianni, Dominic Schmid, Emilien Gür, Giuseppe Di Salvatore, Jean Perret, Jodie McNeilly, Maria Di Salvatore, PM Cicchetti

«Discovery» is Filmexplorer’s keyword for this edition of the Locarno Film Festival, for the great majority of the films that have interested us are first features.

Would the talent scouting be the new identity of this festival? Difficult to say.

Nonetheless, here we propose a broad platform of critical discussions, with few reviews and many short reflections which are meant as starting points for an exchange about films at the beginning of their career.
