The Magasin Award x Best Fashion Film x Best Nordic Talent x Best Idea x Best Message

Copenhagen Fashion Film (CPHFF) investigates and mediates fashion in a new way, by focusing on the close connections among fashion, film and artistic practices. CPHFF consists of an annual film festival, independent film screenings, debates, events and exhibitions. CPHFF functions as a common basis for discussing new ideas and experiments in fashion, film and communication. One of the key elements of CPHFF is the fashion short film, which is a rapidly growing aesthetic and experimental film form that communicates fashion in a new way.

Every year, we have our annual film festival in Copenhagen, which is the biggest fashion film festival in Northern Europe. The festival has changing themes related to the cultural aspects of the history, present and future of fashion and film.

We look forward to receive all your films! Please submit to: submission@copenhagenfashionfilm.dk
