The 13th edition of the five-day program, A Shaded View on Fashion Film (ASVOFF), will run from December 3-7 on FNL Network, a digital network with a focus on fashion, entertainment and lifestyle.

In addition to film screenings, the festival will feature a series of Zoom talks where industry insiders will discuss everything from the state-of-the-art direction to cultural symbolism in fashion.

The 2021 jury will be led by film director and writer Bruce LaBruce, known for his provocative and campy aesthetic, and will also include journalist Susie Lau, influencer Bryan Boy, designer Andre Walker and Sara Maino, deputy editor of Fashion Italia. Awards are presented in traditional categories such as style, beauty, sound editing and documentary, as well as in new categories including diversity, art and design, sustainability and digital fashion.
