We’re off to Belfast Film Festival in April!
FUGI: The Fashion Filmmaker’s Blog in partnership with Digital Arts Studios, Blick Studios, Let Them Eat Cake fashion magazine, the T13 shared cultural space in the Titanic Quarter, and with the support of the British Council presents a series of fashion film programmes at the Belfast Film Festival 2013, which includes the making of a fashion film over the period of the festival.
Belfast born filmmaker and curator, Kathryn Ferguson, having worked with Lady Gaga, Chloé and Sinead O’Connor, to name a few, will present and showcase her work in Fashion Film Programme 1 on Friday 12th April on the Belfast Barge, alongside a reel of fashion films chosen by a panel of industry guests including Ashley Mauritzen, editor of Let Them Eat Cake fashion magazine, Fashion Popcorn’s very own Harriet Fleuriot, and Jayne Pierson, British Fashion Council’s officially ON Digital Schedule fashion designer, showing her collections seasonally with film at London and Paris Fashion Weeks. Doors open at 8pm. Admission £5.
The programme will also be used as a spring-board to jump into the making of a fashion film which will be shot, edited and launched online at Digital Arts Studios, before the end of the Festival, by writer/director Carol Murphy. Belfast band, Girls Names, whose music will be used in the fashion film, will play live to a back-drop of pre-production footage and stills.
Fashion Film Programme 2 will take place on Saturday 20th April at Blick Studios at 52 Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter, starting at 5pm. All are welcome and admission is free to an early evening screening and online launch of Murphy’s fashion film produced over the period of the film festival.
