Great news! Mila is now streaming on the Academy Screening Room and in consideration for the Academy of Motion Pictures Shortlist.

Mila is the story of a five-year-old girl who is confronted with tragedy and loss yet manages to find hope. Inspired by the director’s mother and set in WW II, the film focuses on the collateral damage affecting the civilian population, as seen from a child’s perspective. 

Mila is an animated short film by Cinzia Angelini, produced by Andrea Emmes along with 350 animation professionals from 35 countries that volunteered their time and talent over the last ten years. Cinesite’s Vancouver animation studio joined the film in its last year of production and was instrumental in bringing “Mila” across the finish line in 2021. Mila is produced by PepperMax Films, Pixel Cartoon, IbiscusMedia, Cinesite, and Aniventure. Mila will be featured also at the upcoming ITTV festival. Valentina Martelli, CEO of GGP and founder of ITTV Festival is one of Mila’s executive producers.

Mila’s trailer was presented at the very first edition of ITTV Festival, back in 2019.

2021 edition has the screening of the entire movie in its program.
