John David Washington, Alicia Vikander-Starrer ‘Beckett’ to Open 2021 Locarno Film Festival
The Locarno Film Festival will open this year’s 74th edition on Aug. 4 with the world premiere of Italian director Ferdinando Cito Filomarino’s latest thriller “Beckett,” starring John David Washington, Boyd Holbrook, Vicky Krieps and Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander.

After the film’s Locarno premiere, Netflix will launch the film worldwide on Aug. 13.

Beckett’s” presence marks a return to the Swiss festival for Cito Filomarino, whose 2010 feature “Diarchia” played in the Pardi di domani section.

It also stands out as the festival’s long-awaited return to the iconic Piazza Grande, Locarno’s central square which is home to screenings of its biggest and most audience-friendly movies.

The Piazza Grande is also the festival’s largest competition space, as each day after each screening — exceptions being short films and features in the Histoire(s) du cinéma and Retrospettiva sections — audiences vote for their favorite film using the dedicated festival app.
