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.
