“As an interdisciplinary development platform FASHIONCLASH focuses on presenting fashion in the broadest sense of the word. The growing interest and the rising submissions of fashion film has inspired us to include fashion films screenings in our program. In 2014 and 2015 we have organized the ‘Fashion Film Night Out’ during FASHIONCLASH Festival. In addition, FASHIONCLASH produced several fashion films, such as ‘Aspire’ featuring topmodel Kiki Willems and most recently the Act! Cut! Play! project. – FC artistic team

The State of the Fashion Film
Undoubtingly the fashion film is here to stay as the industry looks further than just clothes and photography. In this era of e-culture, it is one of the best ways to capture a fashion narrative and to reach a wide audience via online platforms and media. Challenging the norms of traditional advertising techniques and moving fashion shoots, designers have embraced film as an art form and have moved away the use of mundane product placement. Technological developments have made fashion films more accessible. Fashion film has become an essential part of the communication strategy fashion brands and more young designers are experimenting with the genre. In this era of rising e-culture, it is one of the best ways to capture a fashion narrative and to reach a wide audience via online platforms.
Film as a medium is an incredible discipline to tell stories. But is exactly a fashion film? What is the future of fashion film and the state of the art of fashion film?

Act! Cut! Play! Project
Recently, the Act! Cut! Play! Project has been organized, an initiative of FASHIONCLASH, Flemish Arts Centre De Brakke Grond and MoMu – Antwerp Fashion Museum. Act! Cut! Play! is an interdisciplinary talent development project with the ambition to lift the quality of fashion films to a higher level. Three teams existing of a designer, theatre maker, and filmmaker from either the Netherlands or Flanders, were challenged to work together to investigate the possibilities and boundaries of their disciplines and the provided ‘format’ of the fashion film. With the incorporation of a theatre maker, the three teams are challenged to make the narrative an important element within the films.

Since December 2016 these three films are on display in the international fashion, theatre-, film- and art world. Meanwhile the films have received nominations and awards in festivals such as ASVOFF, BAIFFF Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Festival, Bokeh Fashion Film Festival (Cape Town), Mexico Fashion Film Festival and Copenhagen Fashion Film Festival.
