The Locarno Film Festival Archives website aims to make the rich history of the Swiss event since its foundation in 1946 available to all, enhancing its cultural value. The intention is to bring together under a single, interactive interface the wealth of various documents and materials previously available only to a limited extent and exclusively on print media.
