Futurespectives is hosted by Gabby Sanderson, presenter, producer and journalist with decades of experience working for leading audio channels such as the BBC, Apple Music Radio, iHeartMedia, RTE, Bauer Media, and one of the key anchors at the International Radio Festival. In Futurespectives Gabby explores her guests’ hidden stories, journeys, and dreams, introducing audiences to fresh perspectives on the future of film, culture and society. Darryl von Däniken says: “Working with leading organisations such as the Locarno Film Festival and UBS, who value innovation as a key driver to get their brands noticed, allows us to fully play out our creative approach to the incredible attributes that audio podcast storytelling offers. And being able to plug in to our global audio network and commission professionals such as Gabby Sanderson and Nik von Frankenberg, offers us the opportunity to curate and ultimately realise exciting audio formats such as Futurespectives for leading organisations and brands”.

The first Futurespectives podcast series will drop regular releases all the way into 2023, aiming to enhance the festival experience beyond the 11 days of the physical event each summer. “The Locarno Film Festival will continue its ongoing expansion in being active throughout the year with a number of innovative engagements, and adding podcast storytelling to the festival’s communications mix will form part of such engagement”, says Darryl von Däniken.
