Milan from 21th to 27th March 2011
The only festival in Italy entirely dedicated to the cinema and cultures of countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America is now a long-standing rendezvous for the fans of cinema from the south of the world.
More than 50 countries are represents with about 80 films and videos screened.
The programme of the 21th African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival includes the two now traditional "competitive" sections - Windows on the World Competitions - open to fiction feature films and documentaries from Africa, Asia and Latin America and three competitions exclusively reserved for Africa: Competition for the Best African Film and the Competitions for the Best Short Fiction Films and Documentaries.
The African Film Festival is not an isolated episode of the activity of the COE but, on the contrary, can be considered as the most significant moment of all the activity of promotion and cultural animation that the COE has offered the countries of the South of the world since 1987.
