Locarno Critics Academy 2013

An index to all work from this year's Locarno Critics Academy...

With autumn's busy festival season now in full swing, it's a good time to archive the critical output filed and recorded by my fellow Critics Academy participants during this year's Festival del film Locarno.

You'll want to take your time with this: the form and range is wide, and many of the films reported on are about to feature at Toronto, New York, London and beyond.

Coverage is listed alphabetically by critic, whose output is then indexed by most recent. Click on a name below for the desired index.
