Berlin Fashion Week may be over, but that doesn't mean much to us. After the success of this year's FIER vitrine, with a turn up of more than 600 guests, including press, buyers, stylists and aficionados of the fashion industry, what lies ahead of us is our sales trip which will cover most of Germany and Paris (and which we'll be covering here over the next few weeks step by step), and the Berlin fashion Film Festival launch.
Just last last week, the Berlin fashion Film Festival opened submissions for its 2014 edition. But that's not all. We are also presenting our 2013 programme in Madrid this weekend at the Museo del Traje in Madrid, and we'll be part of this year's Berlinale through the premiere of Martin Monk's new fashion film AWAKE.
The two events represent two differents types of expansion: on one hand by presenting our programme in Madrid we are giving a tangible example of how our screening can be effortlessly set up and distributed across different cities and countries, and on the other hand by being part of the Berlinale we are giving a clear sign that Fashion Film is something that involves films as much as fashion, and is appreciated by both industries.
Over the course of the next few weeks we'll be giving focused updates of the BfFF on the Berlin fashion Film Festival blog; make sure you check it regularly!
