The 71st Locarno Festival 2018
One of the longest running film festivals in the world, the Locarno Festival 2018 returns for another year, held between 1-11 August in the Swiss-Italian town of Locarno, Switzerland. S.Pellegrino is proud to be the official beverage partner of this prestigious film festival, bringing a touch of sparkle to all premium VIP events throughout the year.
This is the second year of S.Pellegrino’s affiliation with the Locarno Festival, although fairly young in relation to the brand’s cinematic history, it proves to be a significant partnership with its shared values and passion for film. S.Pellegrino has long been connected with the big screen, being the preferred choice of beverage for international productions and film industry collaborations. It continues to support its long-standing partnerships with Cannes and Venice Film Festivals, and more recently, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
To celebrate this year’s Locarno Festival 2018 partnership, S.Pellegrino has released a Special Edition magnum bottle that will be present at selected premium VIP events and official dinners. Many participating stores and brands will be showcasing the exclusive magnum bottles during the event, which will also be available for sale at the Festival as part of the official merchandise.
The Locarno Festival is seen as one of the most important platforms for art house cinema, and a rich program awaits cinema fans this year. Emerging talents rub shoulders with prestigious guests for dozens of awards, a stellar line-up of films, as well as the annual tradition of the evening screenings in the Piazza Grande, where up to 8,000 spectators are shown a variety of world, international and Swiss film premieres.
