23rd African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival
Milan, May 4-10 2013
By now an historical event for the followers of the southern world’s cinema, the only festival entirely dedicated to the knowledge of the cinematography, the realities and cultures of the African, Asian and Latin American countries. More than 50 nations represented, about 80 among films and videos screened. The program of the 23rd African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival counts the usual two competitive sections “Windows on the World” competitions – open to feature films and documentaries from Africa Asia and Latin America – and two competitions exclusively dedicated to Africa: the Best African Filmcompetition and the Best African Short Filmcompetition (open both to fictions 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.
