For the first time ever, the 6th edition of ASVOFF will visit Antwerp on October 15th and 16th, 2013, after its launch at Centre Pompidou during Paris Fashion Week from October 11th until 13th.

Founded in 2008 by the internationally acclaimed fashion critic and video journalist Diane Pernet, A Shaded View on Fashion Film (ASVOFF) is the world’s first annual festival dedicated to fashion films. ASVOFF is not only a competition of short films about fashion, style, beauty but also a traveling international event showcasing feature films, documentaries, conferences, performances and installations.

ASVOFF6 ANTWERP is organized in collaboration with MoMu, Fashion Museum province of Antwerp and Antwerp. Powered by Creatives and will take place at AMUZ, situated in and around the 17th century baroque St. Augustine Church, located in the centre of Antwerp. The building combines an impressive historical setting with all the technical features of a modern concert hall.
