2013 Locarno Film Festival Lineup Includes Kurosawa, Hong, Herzog and More

Brian Clark, European Editor
The lineup for the 66th Locarno Film Festival has been announced, and once again, the program highlights a diverse slate of world cinema from both known directors and new independent talent. The international competition includes 18 world premieres, including Our Sunhithe latest from Hong Sangsoo, who I could have sworn already made two other movie this year. It also includes the international premieres of SXSW Awards darling Short Term 12 and Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Real

In the out of competition spotlight, the festival will host an outdoor screening of the Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington shoot-em-up 2 Guns, and will also screen the Berlin Festival hit Gloria and Jeremy Saulnier's genre knock-out Blue Ruin. As a bonus, there are tribute screenings to George Cukor and Werner Herzog. Check out the full lineup below!
