Proudly supported by the Italian Institute of Culture, Melbourne, this year's inaugural edition of the Milan Design Film Festival at ACMI will present a curated selection of titles from the 9th (2021) edition of the Milano Design Film Festival, alongside films drawn from recent editions of the Festival.
This year's program comprises an eclectic range of documentaries and shorts exploring trends, masters, innovators, historical and contemporary currents. The films featured are devoted to subject matter ranging across Architecture, Design, culture, urban life and beyond, with titles also drawn from ‘Food’ and ‘Bloom’ sidebars featured in recent editions of the Milano Design Film Festival, an annual fixture on Milan's cultural calendar since 2013.
The inaugural selection in this year's edition at ACMI will feature Carlos Saura's feature length documentary, Renzo Piano: Architect of Light, and the Australian premiere of two wide-ranging feature documentaries on Italian innovator, Olivetti (Paradigm and Perspective), alongside opening night film, The Importance of being an Architect, which focuses on Milan-based Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, partners and co-founders of renowned architecture and interior design practice, ACPV, alongside a host of practitioners and collaborators from across the globe.
