The Lord of Milan is a documentary film covering the life of English-born AC Milan founder Herbert Kilpin. The film is directed by Jared Wilson and Georgianna Scurfield and is inspired by a part-fictional book of the same name by author Robert Nieri.

The documentary features commentary from Robert Nieri, Luigi La Rocca, Mark Hateley, Luther Blissett, Daniele Massaro, Giovanni Lodetti, John_Foot_(historian) and many others. The film was shown at cinemas and film festivals across Europe in 2017 and 2018 and eventually released online and on DVD in January 2019. It won two awards at the Olympic-accredited FICTS Film Festival in Milan in October 2017 [1]. and has since toured China[2].

The filming was initially funded by £4000 of public donations on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.[3] However, what initially was going to be a short ended up being a full-length feature and the overall budget of the film is estimated to be nearer £30,000.[4]
