VertigoFilmFest, is proud to announce its first summer event. Will be hosted by the lovely Il Cinemino: movie theatre, neighborhood bar, and above all a milestone in the Milanese film scene.

While waiting for the final event in September, you can get a small taste of some of the most interesting short films, Italian and international, which have arrived at the festival during the last months.

Between a screening and a moment of debate we will also have the opportunity to meet some of the authors, who will be present to answer our questions.
