African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival of Milan
From 08/01/2018 to 18/03/2018, Milan
To mark the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the COE (Associazione Centro Orientamento Educativo) is organising the 28th African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival of Milan, in a bid to promote shared visions about what it means to be and feel European today. Focusing on the cinematographic visions of young authors regarding Italy and multi-cultural Europe, the Festival becomes a common room in which they can express themselves, share their experiences and views and develop.
Since 1991, the African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival of Milan has been the only festival in Italy, and one of only three in Europe, dedicated to the cinematographies and cultures of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since it first began, it has been a reference point for young directors, many of whom have since become famous artists in the international scene. The best in cinema from the three continents for a week of screenings, guests, cultural meetings and special events. The event is organised by the CEO, a NGO which has operated in the field of international cooperation and education for the last 50 years.
