CFF FESTIVAL OPENING
A STORY OF FASHION SHORT FILM
Exhibition, talks, film screenings and award show
30 January – 2 February 2019
In 2019, the Copenhagen Fashion Film Festival tells a story of fashion short film. Fashion short film has always been an element of the festival in connection to our open call competition but we now want to delve more deeply into the genre by giving insights into the films, their style, expression and narrativity as well as showcasing their beginning and early developments. Although the fashion short film has developed considerably over the years, it is not yet fully defined as an independent genre, which implies a range of possibilities to continue experimenting and to break boundaries.
In the Copenhagen Fashion Film Festival, we believe that we have a responsibility to convey the times we live in and present and investigate new tendencies and movements in our society. We also believe that cultural issues can be discussed and communicated in a new way through the medium of film and that different topics can more easily be displayed to the viewer if the fashion short film is perceived as visually and aesthetically interesting.
We are happy to present 10 curated film programmes divided into various themes such as early fashion films from 1900 – 1910, music & dance, young talents, art, sustainability and body & identity together with a wide selection of the best of fashion short film curated by SHOWstudio, all the winning films from Copenhagen Fashion Film’s previous festivals and last but not least the 2019 official open call selection.
With a specially curated selection of fashion films from all over the world accompanied by a talk programme with some of the most important people in the fashion film industry, we will hopefully be a little closer to comprehending the scope of fashion short film.

Copenhagen Fashion Film – The People of Fashion 8 – 10 feb. 2018
Special opening Feb. 7th and warm up Jan. 29 and Feb. 1st during Copenhagen Fashion Week
Each year, Copenhagen Fashion Film focuses on a different theme and this year is no exception.
Fashion takes inspiration from many places but there are a few people, who change fashion forever by just being themselves. Therefore, in this year’s festival, we have chosen to focus on exceptional personalities that have managed to make an impact on a broad international audience and put an indelible impression on our culture with their unique style and their inner glow. In other words, the festival is a tribute to those, who have broken down boundaries by making their world ours.
We have chosen to spotlight musician and actor David Bowie, musician and actor Grace Jones, fashion designer Martin Margiela, actor and style icon Jane Birkin as well as all the greatest supermodels of the 90s.
This year, we also create a pop-up cinema & exhibition outside the auditorium of Cinemateket, allowing the audience to experience the nominated films from this year’s short film programme, various short films focusing on the icons of the festival, and selected fashion short films made by young talents.
Copenhagen Fashion Film continues its talent programme, supporting young Nordic designers and fashion filmmakers by showing their films during the festival, giving away a financial talent prize at the Awards Show and subsequently presenting the films around Denmark and the rest of the world.
The audience can look forward to various film screenings abounding with elegant fashion icons, special talks, debates, exhibitions and special events. Combining the best of contemporary fashion film and a special selection of old cult fashion films, the festival audience is not only in for breathtaking cinematography but also for outstanding fashion film treats.

THE SKIN I WEAR
Body, Gender & Identity
Copenhagen Fashion Film festival – The Skin I Wear focused on the connections between fashion and film through various film screenings, talks, debates and special events. Combining the best of contemporary fashion films with a special selection of old cult fashion movies, the festival audience was not only in for breathtaking cinematography but also outstanding fashion film treats.
This year we paid special tribute to the diversity of the human body and spirit by presenting a selection of films and events that discussed and challenged gender and body issues as well as fashion’s depictions of beauty and ageing. We wished to celebrate the growing changes within fashion casting today and filmmakers who portray the varied and exceptional people of the world we live in – without ever having to compromise their fashion sense! By screening works by directors such as G.W. Pabst, Jennie Livingston, Xavier Dolan, Matt Lambert and Kathryn Ferguson the festival set up a programme that aimed to break boundaries and make us think.
For the first time in Copenhagen Fashion Film’s history, all film artists out there had the chance to submit their fashion film to our short film programme. The prize-winners of this programme were elected by a highly acclaimed international jury consisting of some of today’s key players within fashion and film.
