Madrid Fashion Film Festival 2018

The festival of fashion films is back with an edition dedicated to Japan 

A few weeks ago we reviewed our favourite fashion films of the year, those short films where fashion labels show their latest pieces transporting us to atmospheres and stories that have served as inspiration for their collections. Since the discipline wins more and more followers each year, many festivals have appeared to give them the visibility they deserve. One of the most important is the Madrid Fashion Film Festival that celebrates, from 15 to 18 October, its fourth edition. This year they have Japan as their guest country, celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Spain.

The Fashion Film contest serves as the main event of the festival, where hundreds of filmmakers from around the world have the opportunity of showing their work. This year members of the jury include Masashi Mizukami, Ambassador of Japan in Spain, designer Juan Vidal, director of S Moda, Empar Prieto, actress Hiba Abouk and photographer Carlota Guerrero, among others.

The audience can attend the screening of feature films "MaddMan: The Steve Madden Story", by filmmaker Ben Patterson and "This is my dream", by Teo Stanley, which explores the collaboration between Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas, among others.
