Even the little ones are fans of cinema. As every year, Milano Film Festivalino rounds out the selection of Milano Film Festival with an eye for the little ones. The screenings will be followed by practical workshops on the topic organized by Milano Film Network and illustration workshops organized by Bruna Ferrazzini and Ilaria Turba

Each workshop will be aimed at a different approach to a film technique, so that the small audience and filmmakers of tomorrow will be able to learn the discovery of the movement through the magic lanterns, just like the real pioneers of cinema art, and learn the basic techniques of stop-motion and illustration.
