The Milano Film Festival has been a production by esterni since 1995. Over time it has grown to become one of the main cinema events both at local level and beyond, thanks to the collaboration with public and private organizations. Projections often invaded the public space of Milan or rediscovered venues in the city, inviting thousands of people and enthusiasts to rethink their use.
