Founded by fashion icon Diane Pernet, A Shaded View on Fashion Film (ASVOFF) is a juried global competition for cutting-edge fashion films by emerging and established artists. The winners, showcased in this 60-minute program, are works that challenge the conventional parameters of film and reconsider the way that fashion is traditionally presented. Genre-bending and groundbreaking, ASVOFF has already brought together such illustrious names as Chris Cunningham, Tilda Swinton, Mike Figgis, Chloë Sevigny, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Both screenings will be followed by a discussion with world-renowned fashion critic and video journalist Diane Pernet. Previously a photographer and fashion designer, she now acts as documentary filmmaker, talent scout and fashion blogger on her site, A SHADED VIEW ON FASHION (www.asvof.com), which has become a ‘must-read’ in fashion and creative industry circles since its inception in 2005.
