What is ASVOFF?

ASVOFF (A Shaded View on Fashion Film) is the world’s first film festival dedicated to fashion, style, and beauty founded by fashion icon Diane Pernet.

Since its launch in 2008, ASVOFF has gained critical acclaim for encouraging both emerging and established artists to reconsider the way that fashion is presented and for challenging the conventional parameters of film. ASVOFF tours the globe with screenings at prestigious institutions and events like the Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim, the Barbican, Art Basel Miami, CaixaForum Barcelona, the Franz Mayer Museum, and the Cannes Film Festival in a host of creative capitals such as New York, London, Tokyo, Milan, Moscow, and Mexico City.

ASVOFF is not only a competition of short fashion, style, and beauty films but also a traveling international event showcasing feature films, documentaries, conferences, performances, and installations – making it a must-see on both the fashion calendar and the film circuit for its genre-bending and ground-breaking program.

About the new Anime category

The worlds of Manga and Anime, through the mediums of film and online gaming, have opened up whole new desires and opportunities. 

In the past, brands have traditionally relied on photographers, stylists and creatives – but now, they are turning their attentions to a new generation of artists; to shape and convey their images within a digitally driven and multi-cultural 21st century. 

This makes the ongoing development of both the Manga and Anime fields a highly lucrative and sought-after one. The mission of ASVOFF 14’s brand new category is to showcase these digital talents, which are at the precipice of the Manga and Anime worlds and sit within today’s revered fashion film genre.

Anime Art Academy students - YOU are this brand new generation of artist! And this is your chance to get out there and show your work to the world!

Best of luck to all contestants, and remember to watch this space for more info on our upcoming drawing contest.

Good luck with your submissions, and happy studying everyone!
