Diane Pernet is a world-renowned fashion critic and video journalist based in Paris. Previously a photographer and 'it' designer of New York Fashion, documentary filmmaker, talent scout and fashion blogger on her site A Shaded View on Fashion (www.asvof.com). In 2008, Diane launched A Shaded View on Fashion Film, the world's first fashion and film festival.
Since its launch, ASVOFF has been instrumental in promoting a new creative genre, the 'fashion film', by providing a platform for the work of filmmakers who explore the themes of fashion, through the medium of the moving image. ASVOFF has gained critical acclaim for encouraging both young and established artists to reconsider the way that fashion is presented and for challenging the conventional parameters of film.
Each year, ASVOFF debuts in Paris, and tours the globe with selected screenings at prestigious museums and events in creative capitals such as New York, London, Tokyo, Moscow, Mexico City, Perth and Cannes Film festival. The first edition of A Shaded View on Fashion Film, Barcelona, will take place at CaixaForum.
For the first time, Barcelona will hold the 1st edition of ASVOFF from January 24th until the 27th at CaixaForum Barcelona. Co-directed by Alex Murray-Leslie and Mahala Alzamora, this edition has three competitions.
