Locarno Festival in Los Angeles

MUBI Special

We are thrilled to partner with Locarno Festival in Los Angeles, a new venture between MUBI partner the Acropolis Cinema, the Locarno Festival, and the Swiss Consulate General of Los Angeles. The festival brings to Los Angeles—and to MUBI audiences—a hand-selected group of films from the 69th Locarno Festival.

The Idea of a Lake

Milagros Mumenthaler Argentina, 2016


Today we extend our partnership with Locarno in L.A. and present this fantastic gem from last year’s edition of the Locarno Film Festival. A coming-of-age drama cast in the gaze of memory, place, and time, The Idea of a Lake is a enveloping inquiry of self.

All the Cities of the North

Dane Komljen Serbia, 2016


We’re excited to partner with the newly launched Locarno in L.A. to bring films from the Locarno Film Festival to new audiences. Dane Komljen’s moody festival darling audaciously envisions the success (and failure) of utopian community as a place where relationships and architecture meet.
