Meeting point

The Festival Center goes Online!

For the 30th edition, the way of experiencing the Festival has changed, but absolutely not the variety and quality of the cultural offer.

All the meetings are held on the Zoom platform to give the public the chance to take part in the live broadcasts, meeting the guests virtually and interacting directly with them.

Access to the meetings on Zoom is reserved for those subscribed to the Festival’s newsletter. To receive the link you must register via the form always available in the footer of this website at least 24 hours before the start of the event. If necessary, you can request access by writing to relazioniesterne[at]coeweb.org

Alternatively, you can follow all events live here at the Festival Centre or on the Festival’s Facebook page.

If you still have doubts about how screenings and meetings work, please consult our FAQ!

Meeting point

Festival Center

The Festival Center is the meeting point – with free admission – for the international guests and the public of the African, Asian and Latin American Film Festival, set up in the evocative location of the Casello Ovest of Porta Venezia – Casa del Pane.

Each year it hosts the Festival’s info-point, exhibitions never before shown in Milan, meetings with filmmakers, thematic events on the cultures of Africa, Asia and Latin America, workshops for children, tastings, happy hours, weekend brunches, live music and DJ sets, and a bar area run by the Sunugal / Cascina Casottello Association.

The Festival Center is set up in an exclusive location: the Casa del Pane, one of the two former tollhouses of Porta Venezia, symbols of the district and the city of Milan. The Casa del Pane (House of Bread), together with its sister building which is now the headquarters of the Milanese bakers’ association, was built between 1827 and 1828 on the site of the historic ‘Porta Venezia’ to control goods entering and leaving the city. Today this place is one of the premises of the Sormani library and has become a focal point for events. Throughout the year, its fascinating spaces are transformed to host some important cultural and artistic initiatives.
