Athens Fashion Film Festival 2020: When Ethics Meet Aesthetics


Athens Fashion Film Festival 2020: When Ethics Meet Aesthetics

Fashion films are the new medium used by fashion to express itself in the complex digital environment of today. In these short films, visual arts are combined with music and current ethical-oriented and poetic narration, to “tell the story” of the brand in a profoundly artistic manner, communicating at the same time the latest trends in the art of cinematography, given to us by talented and innovative filmmakers.

Athens Fashion Film Festival is all about them and returns this February, with its 2nd edition, titled “When Ethics Meet Aesthetics”. The festival is a gathering for renowned creatives and professionals in the fields of fashion, cinema, art and environment, an independent event in constant dialogue and collaboration with the international fashion film festival circuit, that has grown to include more than 40 countries around the world. Its programme includes more than a 100 short fashion films and documentaries in competition, special tributes, panel discussions and masterclasses, aiming to offer the Greek and international public an overview of the latest trends and ideas, as well as to trace and explore the relationship between the fascinating industries of film and fashion.

An annual cultural meeting point, where fashion films from all over the world are presented and testify the talent and individuality of their authors. And the best of them will be awarded, by a jury of fashion & film aficionados.

ΑthensFFF wishes to gradually develop into a dynamic market, that will evolve and progress along with the festival and thus provide film production companies and business people the perfect opportunity to meet with young or established creative talents, get to know and understand each other, exchange ideas and finally work together to bring more beauty, inspiration and vision into our lives.

The 2nd AthensFFF is held with the generous support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, the City of Athens, Ambasciata d’ Italia ad Atene, Tempo Forte and Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Atene.
Join us and embrace this year’s festival motto: Beauty Will Save The World!
