Fashion icon, cult blogger, fashion critic, and video journalist Diane Pernet launches the 4th International edition of A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival, a film festival devoted to fashion and style in film. The three day festival is a kaleidoscope of short films (each 30 seconds to 5 minutes long), culminating in the announcement of the winners of ASVOFF’s coveted prizes (the MK2 Grand Prize, Best Film, Best Art Direction, Best Acting, Best Styling, Best Sound Design, the Shu Uemura Beauty Prize and the Emerging Talent Award presented by Portal+Zekka).
Spanning both the establishment and the underground, fashion brands & designers featured in this year’s films include Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Undercover, Miu Miu, Comme des Garcons, Maison Martin Margiela, House of Holland, Stephen Jones, Prada, Dries Van Noten, Charlie le Mindu, Calvin Klein, and Gareth Pugh. Behind the camera are photographers Bruce Weber, Ellen von Unwerth, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Lisa Eisner, Mark Borthwick, Bryan Adams, Walter Pfeiffer, the late Richard Avedon and many others who have turned their hand to video or film in order to capture people with inspirational style who will appear either onscreen or in person at ASVOFF like Rossy de Palma, Daphne Guinness,Christina Kruse, Faye Dunaway and Ultra Violet (the muse of both Salvador Dalí & Andy Warhol).
The iconic Daphne Guinness will make a special appearance to introduce films by Joseph Lally, before sitting for a Q&A session on her many exciting current and forthcoming projects. Rossy de Palma, the legendary actress and muse of Pedro Almodóvar, will also make a special appearance and introduce a film by Kelley Sane.
This year 103 films by 88 directors have been selected for the festival, 68 of which are in competition for prizes. Filmmakers hail from 17 countries far and wide including France, Chile, USA, Latvia, Italy, Japan, UK, Switzerland & Israel.
My partner Vincent Gagliostro is proud to have his short film with Drew Barrymore in the festival.
