Fashion Film Competition

Deadline December 15th, 2010

The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) invites you to participate in the Fashion Film competition, part of the 40th edition of the IFFR. We would like to see film(s) in which you develop and present your ideas, fashion concept or collection. The best films will be screened on the big screen during the coming IFFR, held 26 January - 6 February 2011.

Who can participate:
Every fashion student and recently graduated designer is eligible to submit their film, preferably students in the third or fourth year of their studies or recently graduated designers. It is also possible to collaborate with students from other disciplines (audio-visual, fine art, illustration). Excluded from participation are recordings of fashion shows. Other than that, the possible form of your film can be very open. It can be anything from experimental fiction, documentary, animation and 3D.

December 15th, 2010

Length and form:
Length can be as long or short as you want. Subject is free of choice.

Who are we?
The Rotterdam festival, as one of the major international platforms for independent cinema, has proven itself in the past in raising substantial (new) interest internationally for the work of the filmmakers that we programmed. Every year, we are 'bringing in' and attracting a variety of key-players/professionals from the film industry from all over the world.
The thematic programme section Signals presents innovations in cinema and related arts. This year one of our Signals - Out of Fashion - will be dedicated to fashion films.
In fashion design, films can be used to present a collection, reach a worldwide audience and are cheaper to produce than a fashion show. Films can also be a good medium for fashion designers to develop their artistic concept further. We expect that in the future films will play an increasingly important role in fashion design as a way of presentation.
