This year’s Locarno Film Festival (Aug 7 -17) lineup includes Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Joseph Gordon-Levitt plane thriller 7500, which gets its world premiere at the Swiss showcase. Scroll down for major category lineups.

The 72nd edition of the festival marks the first for incoming artistic director Lili Hinstein who has taken over from Carlo Chatrian. As ever, there is a strong contingent of European and Asian arthouse movies and the Piazza Grande section includes a handful of titles with more mainstream appeal, such as Tarantino’s Cannes pic Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which rolls out globally in August.

More from Deadline

Alongside Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the open air Piazza Grande screenings will include the world premieres of German-produced hijack thriller-drama 7500, Carice Van Houten starrer Instinct, UK comedy actor Simon Bird’s directorial debut Days Of The Bagnold Summer, French director Stéphane Demoustier’s La Fille Au Bracelet (The Girl With A Bracelet), Italian pic Magari with Riccardo Scamarcio and Alba Rohrwache, and Valérie Donzelli’s Notre Dame. Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s To The Ends Of The Earth will also be among international premieres.

Overseeing the international competition jury will be French filmmaker Catherine Breillat. Fellow jury members will be producer Ilse Hughan, critic Emiliano Morreale, actor Nahuel Pérez Biscayart and filmmaker Angela Schanelec.

This year’s International Competition includes the international premiere of A24’s Sundance title The Last Black Man In San Francisco, the world premiere of Icelandic director Rúnar Rúnarsson’s (Volcano) new movie Bergmál (Echo) and the international premiere of Japanese director Koji Fukada’s Okogao (A Girl Missing).

As previously announced, John Waters will receive the festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Hinstein said of her first Locarno lineup, “The choices you make for your first festival all tend to become a kind of manifesto. I hope that will be the case for me, too, and that my first edition as artistic director will present you with an editorial line that is clear and precise but also eclectic, open to all genres, all continents, all forms of representation.”
