What to do at Milano Film Festival

News > Eventi | What to do at Milano Film Festival

There are two events that the people of Milan wait as if they were kids at Christmas Eve: St. Ambrogio and the Milano Film Festival. As far as the first one is concerned, there is little to say: according to the tradition, at the beginning of November, we celebrate the patron of Milan. Which means, often and luckily, “a long weekend”.
As far as the second event is concerned, instead, there is a lot to talk about.
But, let’s take things slowly.

What is the Milano Film Festival

Inaugurated in 1995, the Milano Film Festival (MFF) is a festival that has a simple but noble goal: the search for new languages ​​and new contents, the promotion of Italian and international talents and the reinterpretation of the major authors of the history of cinema.
Quoting from the website, it is “in look for cultural quality, a festival open and democratic, a platform of information and analysis, a workshop for young people and an international square”.
And, because of these characteristics of openness and sharing, the MFF could only take place in parks, squares and theaters.
