Fashion Is More Than Clothing: New Awards for Lifestyle, Fashion and Beauty 

Berlin - October 16, 2015 - Berlin fashion Film Festival is opening submissions for its 5th edition. To celebrate the rise of fashion film, the film festival focused on branded content is challenging the notion of fashion film and accepting films aimed at the lifestyle and beauty industries.

Filmmakers, advertising agencies, production and post-production companies, designers and brands are invited to submit work with a strong emphasis on style, including film productions made for the travel, hotel, food, drink and automobile industries. Films can be submitted through the Berlin fashion Film Festival website:

Submitters can enter their work to win up to ten Film Craft Awards, as well as the Best Lifestyle, Best Clothing, Footwear & Accessories and Best Beauty & Accessories awards. This year also sees the addition of three special awards, namely Best Music Video, Best Experimental and Best Use of Tech. Depending on the submitted work, this will also be automatically considered for Best Emerging Talent, Best Film for a Major Brand and Best Local Production. 

Frank Funke, director of Berlin fashion Film Festival, states: “Fashion Film has come to mean more than clothing and accessories. Over the past four editions of BFFF we’ve seen an increasing number of highly styled film content that doesn’t quite fit in the traditional fashion film genre. This year we want to make sure this work is fairly represented and rightfully awarded.

”For the two-day event held at the beginning of June 2016, the BFFF founders are looking to curate a film programme based on strong concepts, beautiful execution and strong emotional engagement. The festival, which has doubled in size with every edition both in terms of programme as well as submissions received, with 734 Submissions from 57 Countries last year alone, remains focused on celebrating creative talent, highlighting upcoming new trends and connecting the creative industries.
