Bucharest Fashion Film Festival opens online with cult films, new productions, and documentaries

6 November 2020

Sexy, imaginative, and smart: the third edition of the Bucharest Fashion Film Festival is opening online with dozens of events to populate your days between 6-11 November.

The festival aims to galvanise the conversation on the relationship between clothes design and cinema, as fashion films, standing at the crossroads between advertising, video art, and arthouse shorts, have rapidly gained ground thanks to social media.

With 40 fashion shorts in the international competition, the festival also includes talks and a free workshop on fashion filmmaking with Central St Martins and Chelsea School of Art lecturer David McGovern.

Film and fashion buffs will also be able to watch four cult camp movies from the 1970s, and a series of visual anthropological takes on style in the festival section Dressing the Body.

The event also features two 2019 documentaries, Martin Margiela In His Own Words, on American fashion designer Margiela, and Beniamino Barrese’s The Disappearance of My Mother, which gives an intimate glimpse into the life of the former Italian model, 70s feminist activist, and academic Benedetta Barzini, as she plans to run away from her family and community.
