  • About
  • Submission Info

We are looking for new cinema languages and contents. We are committed to support new Italian and international talents and rediscover and reinterpret some of the greatest artists in the history of cinema. Every year we travel, collect and discuss about films of different length and genre, made in many different languages and formats, coming from all over the world.

Our festival takes place in public spaces throughout Milan. Every year over 100,000 people from the whole world sit in front of our screens watching films for about two weeks in September: places to socialize with other people and share ideas. Day and night squares, theatres, auditoriums, streets, alleys, car parks, suburbs, parks, museums and galleries are full of people of different ages. Public spaces throughout the city are always open, inviting, enlightened and lively.

Milano Film Festival is a production by esterni (registered trademark of Associazione culturale Aprile).

We’ve a section dedicated to the animation world, with a marathon of short animated film, workshop and activities and a feature-length animation in the main out of competition section.
