Rome -- Julian Jarrold's "Brideshead Revisited" will open the 61st Locarno Film Festival, highlighting a lineup that will see nearly two dozen world premieres screen in the festival's historic Piazza Grande or in the main competition.
In between, the Piazza Grande lineup will unspool Marco Siega's comedic drama "Chaos Theory," Clark Gregg's comedy "Choke," Denis Rabaglia's romantic drama "Marcello, Marcello" and Garth Jennings' "Son of Rambow," which was scheduled to screen in Locarno in 2007 but pulled because of a legal dispute.
The Piazza Grande selection continues the trend of accessible fare screening in Europe's largest outdoor cinema venue under third-year artistic director Frederic Maire, as opposed to the more weighty and cerebral productions that screened there in the past.
The 17-film international competition lineup, meanwhile, is made up entirely of world and international premieres.
The complete competition lineup follows:
"Berlin Calling," Hannes Stoehr, Germany
"Khamsa," Karim Dridi, France
"La Fille De Monaco," Anne Fontaine, France
"Lesson 21," Alessandro Baricco, Italy/U.K.
"Retouches," Georges Schwizgebel, Switzerland/Canada
