Los Angeles, California, United States of America – April 5th, 2018 – The Los Angeles Fashion Film Festival (LAFFF) is hosting its inaugural two-day event on October 5 and 6 2018. The festival is now inviting film, fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and tech producers across the globe to submit their fashion films, display their creative skill, showcase collaborations, and share progressive ideas that will revolutionize the future of consumer engagement.

To submit, creatives must complete an official entry form which can be found on the LAFFF website; shortlisted films will be notified by September 15. A full breakdown of fees and categories can be found on FilmFreeway.

Film submissions for the inaugural festival are currently open with an early bird deadline on May 15, a regular deadline on July 15, a late deadline on July 31, and a final, extended deadline on August 15.

The Los Angeles Fashion Film Festival will also offer a unique chance for brands and consumers to discover and interact with a mesh of fashion, film, and tech that blends immersive technologies, such as Virtual Reality, with creative expression. Its mission is to fuse brands with their audiences, creating a new future for the “connected consumer” while fostering the independent creativity of individuals.

“With an undeniable, emergent trend of cutting-edge technology like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and 360˚ video intertwining with fashion, we currently imagine the inaugural festival as ‘the future of…’ that will go above and beyond the existing film festival platform,” said Leslie Bedolla, co-founder of the LA Fashion Film Festival.  

“Think fashion runs into Sundance, then swings by to pick up SXSW for a wild ride into new possibilities!”

LAFFF, which is a cultural initiative from kulturspace, will run for two days as a platform revealing the latest inclusive, consumer-facing interactive events, demos, displays, and brand experiences. The event is already promising a radical new look into the future of consumerism and technology, where creativity and retail are fused together by emerging tech.

“Technology is changing the world rapidly, making it an even more inclusive place where brands and consumers are connecting in innovative ways that simply didn’t exist before – even just a decade ago,” said Justin Merino, co-founder of the LA Fashion Film Festival.

“What this festival is about is bridging the gap between brands and their consumers by showcasing thought-provoking, stimulating fashion film messages that leverage the latest in game-changing tech. LAFFF absolutely promises to be an immersive, eye-opening experience that showcases an incredible crossroads of art, technology, and retail.”
