The last days of summer will be animated by Milano Film Festival (9-18 September): independent directors, films premiere, music, get-togethers. The festival’s headquarters will be in Parco Sempione, with a 900 seats open-air cinema, a 12 meter high media tower, a meeting area and other structures like a hammock parking bay to enjoy the park. esterni, in collaboration with Alexander Roemer / ConstructLab, takes care of the venues’ design.

And the Oscar’ race started… with a very bad news for lovers of independent animation. The Academy Awards just released the list of the 15 contenders to the Best Animation Feature Award, announcing that the final nominees for the prize will be only 3 instead of 5. Less films will receive the fundamental promotion that comes from being nominated at the Oscars, and the effects of this decision will damage mostly independent and art-house features. 

Anyway, Milano Film Festival raises his preferences: the “animated feature for adults” My Dog Tulip, from veteran Paul Fierlinger and the dark and metaphorical Idiots and Angels by the king of independents Bill Plympton (whose shorts are a “good habit” of Milano Film Festival). But while these two artistic flicks have very few chances against Pixar and Dreamworks last efforts, some surprise may come from the very masterpiece of this year: The Illusionist (L’illusioniste) by genius Sylvain Chomet, who was already nominated to Oscars with his previous Les triplettes de Belleville

Planned in the United States ad a Christmas’ release, the film is still in (a few) Italian theatres, distributed by Nanni Moretti’s Sacher. Milano Film Festival strongly recommends you to go watching this marvellous story about dreams, illusions and power of art. And a delicate tribute to Jacques Tati.

Do you like inventions? Wallace and Gromit, the most famous creations by Aardman’ genius Nick Park, should be your spiritual guide. 

They launched a creative contest on their website: create a piece a Wallace and Gromit artwork and you can win a useful guide inside their creations, as well as some wonderful W&G Pizza and Baking Kits!

This is a picture from the Aardman’ masterclass at last Milano Film Festival edition, as taken from our Flickr.

Janus Metz’ Armadillo was nominated by the European Film Academy for the Best Documentary Award 2010.

This shocking documentary, which displays the Afghanistan War as seen from the point of view of three volunteers caught by rage and fury, was one the most well acclaimed films at the last Milano Film Festival, with more than 2000 persons attending the screenings. Check out the MFF review of Armadillo here.

The awards will be announced on December 4th during the final ceremony in Tallinn, Estonia. Good luck to Armadillo.

We are sure it’s not going to be the last award for this unmissable documentary.

Belgian filmmaker and artist Nicolas Provost - above you can watch an excerpt of his visually stunning Long Live the New Flesh - has always been a very welcome presence at the Milano Film Festival. His disturbing and visually fascinating narrative short films Exoticore and Induction were in competition in 2005 and 2007, as well as the cinematic hommage Gravity (2008) and Stardust, his last effort, which was our staff’ choice for last 2010 edition. Four presences plus one: he joined the feature film competition Jury in 2009 (and this was their choice).

The wonderful news is that Provost at the moment is shooting his first feature film, L’Ehvahisseur (The Invader), which comes back to the theme of illegal immigration as seen by the perspective of an African guy in Bruxelles. As for Exoticore and Induction, statuesque Issaka Sawadogo from Burkina Faso is the main actor, together with Italian actress Stefania Rocca, whom presence could be a good chance to see this film released in Italy.

Good cinematic luck to Nicolas Provost!
