I saw Planet Terror in Copenhagen last week. Purely awesome. And I’ve seen the Death Proof 3 times now. Total geniusness.
I’ve been to Locarno Film Festival three times, it’s an AWESOME film festival (after Cannes and Venice, this must be one of the coolest together with the Berlin one), I hope that you are getting a badge that gives you complete free access, as a journalist you most probably got it. There are tons of cool films usually at that festival…
The outdoor Piazza Grande cinema with something like 2000 seats is really NICE, and they have done some program changes so they can do some hommage to Bergman and Antonioni.
If you need to keep some cash on your credit card, there is a nice and cheap camping about 10 minutes walk along the Lake, that’s where I usually stay.
This year though I’m not going to be at the Locarno Film Festival. Looking forward to your reports.
