Dear Shaded Viewers,
ASVOFF, the world’s first film festival dedicated to fashion, style and beauty, has struck a deal that will see the creation of a branded channel to broadcast short films to over 60 million people. The unprecedented partnership between ASVOFF and the FNL Network introduces an exciting new element to the 11th edition of the festival.
In addition to ten awards chosen by a jury of esteemed fashion and film industry leaders ranging from Heron Preston, President to Marisa Berenson , President of Honour, ASVOFF 11 will offer its first People’s Choice Prize in collaboration with the FNL Network on Amazon FireTV Worldwide and Roku Worldwide, two of the world’s most powerful video streaming platforms with 34 million and 27 million active global monthly users respectively. The FNL Network’s ASVOFF channel will showcase some of the short films in competition free for the public to view from today until voting closes.
The first decade of ASVOFF was about bridging two industries, nurturing the fashion film genre and elevating it so that industry leaders from both worlds had a platform to reward talent in this vibrant space. The next decade of ASVOFF will build on these exclusive foundations while simultaneously breaking down barriers to bring filmmakers and their audience closer. This more intimate and inclusive approach will also help fashion films reach a much wider audience by giving audience members a voice and a vote. The introduction of the People’s Choice Prize this year is just the first step in that direction
We live in an era where everyone’s a critic. Viewers who have social currency feel more empowered than ever and we plan to tap into that. With ASVOFF based in Paris and the FNL Network in Los Angeles, this year’s festival will have the best of both worlds: authority figures in the global capitals of fashion and film engaging with a new grassroots movement that makes fashion film more accessible while boosting creativity and commercial opportunities. I’m incredibly excited about the future and ASVOFF 11 is where it starts.
