Kylie To Attend Festival Del Film Locarno

The Film Festival Locarno is an international film festival held annually in August in the city of Locarno, Switzerland since 1946. After Cannes and Venice and together with Karlovy Vary, Locarno is the Film Festival with the longest history. The main feature of the festival is the open-air screening space in the astonishing Piazza Grande, with room for over 8,000 spectators, and with one of the largest open air screens in the world (26x14 metres).
The Locarno Film Festival is well known worldwide to be a festival of discovery. Throughout its history the festival has discovered new trends and launched the career of numerous directors and actors. Although the festival aims at the films, rather than at stars and glamour, several well-known personalities of the international film industry have been to the Locarno International Film Festival in recent years.

Kylie Minogue is to attend the festival this year!
The appointment is scheduled for Friday, August 3rd, when her presence - petite and slightly aggressive - will enrich the presentation of the Pardo d'onore Swisscom which will be given to a visionary and irregular genius like Leos Carax. Kylie Minogue, in fact, is one of the main performers of the last great work directed by the French videomaker, Holy Motors, which will be screened on the same day at 4:15 pm (La Sala). A performance where - as admitted by the popstar herself - acting and singing found an exceptional meeting point. In the elegant, "cinéphile" mechanism adopted by a feature composed by movies into the movie, Kylie Minogue carves out a musical melò role where she performs in her prodigious octaves before leaving the scene in a dramatic way.
Her presence in Locarno is worth the double if we consider that the Melbourne born artist has also a cameo role in the cast of the American Jack and Diane (directed by Bradley Rust Gray) which was selected in the program of the Concorso internazionale.
