The Swiss premiere of “No Time to Die” (2021) takes place at 9 pm on Tuesday, September 28 at the Zurich Convention Center. The ZFF shows a second screening of the movie on Saturday October 2, also at the Zurich Convention Center, the ZFF’s new 1200-seat screening venue – making it Switzerland’s largest Bond screening. A retrospective of Daniel Craig’s four previous appearances as Bond, and the new documentary “Being James Bond”, complements one of the most sensational premieres in ZFF history.

“We are extremely pleased to be one of the first in the world to show our audience the most recent Bond adventure,” says Christian Jungen, Artistic Director of the ZFF. “We fought for months to get this premiere and had to negotiate every last detail with the distribution company Universal. Never before has James Bond been in the official selection of a film festival. I am further pleased that the ZFF has succeeded in this coup as it sends out a powerful signal that highlights the importance of cinema. The industry has waited more eagerly for this movie than any other.” 

James Bond’s connection with Switzerland stretches back to the very first film, when the Swiss actress Ursula Andress played Bond woman Honey Ryder in the 1962 movie “Dr. No“. Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, is said to have been so impressed by Andress that he made Bond’s mother Swiss in his next novel, thus making James Bond half Swiss.
