Fashion film, a relatively new arrival to the short film festival scene, has been described by some commentators as 'the new music video'. While the two worlds of fashion and music have a long standing relationship, post-internet short film has reinforced this symbiosis. With similar evolutionary beginnings, fashion film and music video can echo one another in process and form and have forged some compelling audio-visual dynamics. The films in this series have been selected for their innovative or considered use of fashion image and sound; a multi-sensory treat, these aim to thrill aesthetically and acoustically.
The screening is followed by a panel featuring Leonie Cooper (ex-London College of Fashion student and Senior Staff Writer at NME) and Katie Baron (author of Fashion Creatives Shaping Pop Culture).
