Major American titles like Jon Favreau‘s Cowboys and Aliens, Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Drive, Kevin Smith‘s Red State, J.J. Abrams‘ Super 8 and Will Gluck‘s Friends With Benefits will vie with an eclectic mix of international films.

Said artistic director of the festival Olivier P?re in a statement, "This competition, both open-minded and demanding, brings together several major names in contemporary cinema who have already produced a body of work that has been acclaimed at many festivals - Locarno regulars, and those invited for the first time, as well as young auteurs from all over the world whose talent and skill already prove they are ripe for international competition."

He also noted that the festival, while "faithful to its origins," was also looking forward and continues "its adventurous course, always attentive to change in film and the emergence of new talent."

Those expected to attend this 64th edition include Claudia Cardinale, Ingrid Caven, Kabir Bedi, Guy Bedos, Abel Ferrara, Mike Medavoy, Bruno Ganz, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Claude Goretta, Hitoshi Matsumoto, Kati Outinen, Pierre Richard, Maribel Verdu, Anri Sala, Daniel Brühl and Nicolas Winding Refn.
