Known as the Cannes of fashion film, La Jolla will once again will be the market maker for distribution deals, director representation, and fashion film production houses.
LJIFFF 2013 was by all accounts a spectacular success. With over hundreds of fashion filmmakers from around the world in attendance, the packed theater of 500 attendees was enthralled by the top 1% of fashion films produced worldwide.
From our neighbors in Hollywood to the fashion capitals of the world, we came together once again to network, attend seminars & panels, screen films, go to press receptions, participate in After Parties, and win awards. The films that made it into the final program represented some of the most brilliant and creative directors in filmmaking today. Curated from the dynamic and the exploding world of fashion film, are a glimpse of what’s trending in the minds of the world’s top fashion houses, designers, and stylists interpreted through the lens of their filmmaking counterparts.
In 2013, in support of our mission to empower creative professionals worldwide, we introduced the International Fashion Film Awards (IFFAS) at La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival. The next IFFAS will be a star-studded event held July 27, 2014 at one of Hollywood’s most famous venues – the Fox-Wilshire-Saban Theater. More details and tickets will be available in January 2014.
Both the LJIFFF and IFFAS will be having separate juries and awards enabling filmmakers and creative professionals worldwide twice the opportunity for recognition and award winning.
