“Mila” – #LetsMakeADifference for Child Survivors of War
After five years of commitment, passion and determination with 250 artists volunteering from 25 countries, “Mila” – written and directed by Cinzia Angelini – prepares for its last year of production and needs help in raising $60,000. On May 10th, 2016, the project launched on Indiegogo.
Sadly, “Mila” is a timely condemnation of the violence currently on the world stage today. Rather than turn away, we aim to use our talents, and the magic of animation, to move people, to remind us all of the humanity at stake, and the hope that remains, through the eyes of a child.
“We worked hard to prepare a campaign that would give our fans the chance to help the production, the artists, and the #MilaMovement.”

Because even a volunteer effort such as this, isn’t cheap to make. “Mila” is coming to life thanks to the dedication and passion of many artists around the world and the contributions of many sponsors.
“We worked hard to prepare a campaign that would give our fans the chance to help the production, the artists, and the #MilaMovement.” says Angelini. “At this point, we need their help to complete the film and draw attention to children trapped in violent conflicts in the many unstable parts of the world today.”
Contributions from “Mila” supporters will allow the team to tackle many production expenses that confront them daily. I.e. Hardware, Software, Rendering and Post-production costs. “Mila” is a high quality animated short film that will deliver the production value and emotion no less breathtaking than that of any film produced at a major animation studio.
What/Who is Mila?
Set during World War II, “Mila” is a complex and unusual subject for animation. The story is of five-year-old Mila, and is set in 1943, during the bombing of Trento, Italy. It focuses on the collateral damage affecting the civilian population – especially the children. Cinzia says, “the film was inspired by tales of my mother during the War, when she was Mila’s age.”
“Mila” is a universal message of hope, perseverance and compassion. “Mila” will take you on an emotional ride using powerful visuals and an original, captivating orchestral score.
The crowd-funding campaign is organized and managed directly by the Mila Team.
