Clara Kiskanc

Open Doors Coordinator,
Locarno Film Festival


Born as a love for all forms of art and following different experiences in diverse grounds, she studied cinema as a language that is able to combine and transform a variety of styles, needs and visions.

Eager to know what happens throughout the entire film cycle, and attracted to a kind of cinema that comes from faraway, in 2019 she joined the Open Doors team at the Locarno Film Festival, where film talents from countries where cinema is more fragile can find a place to grow together and to develop their projects and careers.

She is also an editor of Cinemany, focusing on articles about contemporary filmmakers, and she recently collaborated with a production company.
