Flash Projects is delighted to be partnering Fashion in Film Festival 2010.
Since its foundation in 2005, the Fashion in Film Festival (FFF) has become a leading showcase for the common ground shared by fashion and film. The biennial festival premiered in London in May 2006 with the brilliantly received programme “Between Stigma and Enigma” and now has a touring schedule which includes the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, Kino Svetozor in Prague and Mode Biennale in Arnhem.
More than just a celebration of fashion in film, the festival encourages critical response to its content, and addresses current practices in the context of film’s long history. Dedicated to promoting new ideas and experimentation, FFF also commissions new work in contemporary “fashion moving image”, bringing together artists, designers, photographers, filmmakers, performers and musicians. Drawing on a rich film history and a wide variety of genres, from feature and documentary film to artist video, animation shorts and newsreels, FFF presents a mix of popular culture, art and the underground which shows how the moving image has represented and interpreted fashion as a concept, an industry and a cultural form.
FFF is partnered and supported by a number of major cultural institutions internationally, including the University of the Arts London, Arts Council England, Arts & Business, Film London, Institut Français, Tate Modern, BFI Southbank, SHOWstudio and New York’s Museum of the Moving Image and Tribeca Grand.
In addition to the biennial touring festival, Fashion in Film’s curators also collaborate on smaller projects including special screenings, conferences and exhibitions.
