Applications open for Born Shorts Film Festival 2013


And speaking of film festivals, the Bornshorts Film Festival has announced their call for submissions for 2013.

The 6th edition of the festival will be held 12 to 14 September on the island of Bornholm, Denmark. The festival invites filmmakers to submit for narrative and documentary features, and short film entries in fiction, music video, animation and fashion films.

We asked Bornshorts what they’re looking for in the fashion film category and they told us that the video has to be the official commissioned version by a brand and that they go for “contemporary explorations of fashion, revolutionary films that smells of sex and danger.” Oooh lala. Which might explain why last year’s fashion film winner was Get Richard, a superb fashion film favourite of ours, directed by Justin Anderson, and recently featured in our post about funny fashion films:
