Semaine de la critique
Founded in 1990, the Semaine de la critique is an independent section within the Locarno Festival organized by the Swiss Association of Film Journalists.
Every year the Semaine de la critique shows seven documentary feature films as world or international premieres. The section focuses on innovative films on the brink of the mainstream – both formally and content wise.
Bold films which open up new perspectives and which provoke a debate. The goal is to bring together a wide range of different works, each with a unique vision.
