Fantastic Short Film Friday - Milan Dreaming (live-action)

And we are back with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.

It's time for another amazing short film for all you short film lovers out there. This one's gonna be short and sweet. It's a simple travel doc filmed by someone who had recently moved to Milan and wanted to showcase its beauty and the people who live/visit the thriving city. Here is the 4-minute travel documentary short Milan Dreaming from filmmaker Francesco Paciocco.

Here's the synopsis:

 A trip straight through the heart of Milan—a city that is as haunting as it is enveloping.

I've been to Italy a few times now, but one of the things I've never been able to do is travel to Milan. After seeing this short though, I need to get down to the Fashion mecca of the world and take in its mystic. It reminds me a lot of Amsterdam in its congestion, layout, people and beauty.

Check this out if you want to see the daily life of a beautiful city. Check this out if you want to see a charming and lyrical travel doc that will make you fall in love all over again. Enjoy this weeks dose of short film goodness with Milan Dreaming.

Francesco Paciocco, the maker of this short, here. :) Thanks so much for the write up! It makes my day to read about feedback to the film...your post really means a lot to me

Here's my new project in case you're interested--"Birthplace" is a documentary on the importance of where our families come from:

We hope you're with us to pass the word on the Kickstarter fundraising campaign to get the funds to finish this film, which presents Italians in a positive light. We have until August 23 to reach our goal and we're already halfway there! Every little bit counts and together we can do this!

Thanks again!
