Festival of African, Asian and Latin American Cinema of Milan

Festival of African, Asian and Latin American Cinema of Milan

The African Film Festival of Milan came into being in 1991 as an opportunity to get to know the issues and languages of new cinemas from Africa and the African diaspora in the world. For the first nine years, the African Film Festival of Milan screened exclusively films from Africa and the diaspora, helping to enrich the Italian cinema panorama by bringing to Milan, and then circulating throughout Italy, hundreds of films from these virtually unknown cinemas. Thanks to the vision of Africa and the world by African filmmakers, the Festival offers a concrete alternative to the mainstream culture and information of the mass media.
