The Festival stands out for its continuous and careful attention to young and talented filmmakers that are able to experiment with genres, languages, techniques and formats and offer therefore an always wider view - both geographically and politically speaking - of international filmmaking.
Beside the international competitions, this year's programme will include again out-of-competition strands and special events; from the Milano Film Festivalino (a festival for children only) to Incontri Italiani (Italian Get-Togethers), from the Salon des refusis to seasons or retrospectives that feature works by outstanding filmmakers or films produced during a particular period of the film history. Furthermore, a number of meetings with directors and artists, open forums, workshops and live performances will enrich the main event.
