Special sections & MiWY

There aren’t only competitive sections at FESCAAAL: we are also presenting special sections and the Flash Section, featuring relevant premieres by important directors, films acclaimed by critics or awarded at the most prestigious festivals across the globe. A section dedicated to the best contemporary productions to tell all about modern Africa, Asia and Latin America.

During the selection process, a special attention will be dedicated to African short films and features from the 3 continents to present to the audience of the third MiWorld Young Film Festival – MiWY (Milan, May 2-8, 2022). MiWY is a festival within the festival dedicated to new generations, which collects all the educational activities carried on by COE Association in the framework of film literacy projects.
