From 3 to 5 November, the first film festival in the Netherlands highlighting the genre of the fashion film
A rich and varied three-day event: nearly 60 films and short films from all over the world, projected at the Lumière Cinema in the city of Maastricht.
The inauguration ceremony will be introduced by We Margiela, the film-documentary about the story of the famous and controversial maison and the mysterious fashion designer, already widespread in numerous festivals and international events (Italy’s preview was at 10 Corso Como, at the end of October).
On Saturday, in addition to the films, are scheduled several workshops, meetings and seminars that anticipate the award ceremony (three are the awards: Best National, International and Emerging Fashion Film), followed by a live performance by AKATAK, collective of visual and performing arts founded by Karlijn Milder, Lotte Milder and Mats Logen.
A vibrant event, therefore, featuring well-known or emerging filmmakers and fashion designers. A unique opportunity to immerse yourself and become inspired by the glamorous fashion world, discover new talents, and learn about the rapidly growing and engaging fashion movie genre.
Among the films, Kill your darlings, by Maarten van Mulken,
FFF is an initiative by the Maastricht-based foundation FASHIONCLASH Foundation that is known for organizing high-profile projects and supporting emerging talents all over the globe.
