It is clear that stringent protection measures have been taken but so it is possible to conduct the festival although there is Corona ravaging. Fans in the fan zone all had to register before. On the 24th when Ray Parker, Jr. (66) was there and in the second week when Oscar winner Juliette Binoche (56) and Johnny Depp (57) make their appearance on Sechseläutenplatz, it will be closed off for security reasons.
Honors and Program
The 16th Zurich Film Festival honors the French actress Juliette Binoche with its highest award. The Oscar-winner stands for committed auteur cinema and upscale Hollywood entertainment. She will present her new film LA BONNE ÉPOUSE at the festival.
Additionally, in this year of Covid-19, the Zurich Film Festival once again offers an extensive program: 23 of the 165 films are running as world premieres, more than ever before. More than half of the films in the competitions are by women. A special focus is on young French cinema. Iris Berben receives a Golden Eye for her career. The Zurich Film Festival also honors the actress Olivia Colman with a Golden Eye Award. She shines in the drama THE FATHER alongside Anthony Hopkins.
The opening ceremony on the evening of Thursday, 24 September 2020, showed us some Swiss local celebrities like the Federal Councillor («Bundesrat» / Swiss minister) Alain Berset and the City of Zurich Mayor, Corine Mauch, as guests of honor. With the world premiere of the Swiss film WANDA, MY MIRACULOUS by Bettina Oberli, the 16th Zurich Film Festival opened this evening in the cinemas Corso and Arthouse Le Paris. The guests of honor emphasized the importance of cinema in Swiss culture.

Zurich Film Festival’s already long history
In October 2005 it took place for the first time and within a few years, it has established itself on the international festival scene. The Zurich Film Festival aims to provide a large audience with an insight into the work of young, emerging filmmakers from all over the world and to promote the exchange between established filmmakers, young talents, and the audience.
A central location in Zurich
Zurich’s Sechseläutenplatz, located in the middle of the city and on the shore of Lake Zurich, is the hub of the festival. Here you will find the festival cinemas Corso, Le Paris, Piccadilly, and the festival center. The other festival cinemas Arena Cinemas Sihlcity, Filmpodium, and Kosmos are only a few minutes away.
Unfortunately, so far the weather has been rather rainy and even a little bit cold. However, for the photo shootings on the green carpet, the stars showed their best evening dresses.
Finishing this article here on LivingFlawless.com with the influencer Zoë Pastelle Hothuizen, allows me to elegantly invite you to follow us on Pinterest (more to follow). I am so glad even though the Covid-19 crisis goes on the people of the ZFF were courageous enough to decide to conduct the festival. I remember my last “Red Carpet” article was about Hairstyle Trends As Seen At the Oscars 2020, and that’s quite a while ago!
Good luck to the ZFF and hope all stay safe and healthy!
