Within the Fashion Week Berlin program for the second time the BERLIN fashion FILM FESTIVAL (BfFF) takes place. SUPERIOR Magazine talked to organizers and co-founders Lisa Filippini, Frank Funke and Niccolò Montanari.
Lisa, together with Frank and Niccolò, you are the organizers and co-founders of The Berlin Fashion Film Festival. Tell us a little bit about the festival.
Lisa & Nico The idea of The Berlin fashion Film Festival began in 2011, in one of my friends’ flat in Berlin. Nico and I began to illustrate the project to the designers and movie maker friends that we had invited; we had no electricity that night, so the whole flat was lit up with tea lights, which added a lot of atmosphere to the evening. The initial idea was to work with a selected range of designers and combine live catwalk elements with fashion films, something that seemed to be on the rise. A series of coincidences led us to Frank, who had also been working simultaneously on the same project, just from a different angle. We had been organising fashion events for a few years, whereas he had been working on film production, which made our union seem like the most logical course of action. The more people we spoke to, the more we realised we were thinking too small, and that this was in many ways how fashion and the way we perceive it was heading.
Frank It was really a gift meeting while we had more or less the same idea. A few years ago I discovered Fashion Film as a very interesting genre, especially in terms of engaging with “branded storytelling”. One of my personal reasons, beside giving filmmakers a platform to show their work, was to bring BfFF to life, to show brands how much more they can do and achieve if they produce something more than the too often seen making-of videos or those where people seem to have re-discovered the use of kaleidoscope-effects as an art form (laughs).
What makes The Berlin Fashion Film Festival special or unique compared to other fashion film festivals?

Auf ihre Eigenständigkeit und modische Unabhängigkeit im Dialog mit der selbstbewussten modernen Frau legt Anita Keckeis mit ihrem Label KEX SPITZENKULTUR großen Wert. Jedes Design der Schals, Colliers und Gürtel wird höchstens 98 Mal hergestellt. Keine großen Mengen – kein Ausverkauf – KEX soll seine Exklusivität und seinen zeitlosen Wert bewahren.
Facetten klischeefreier Schönheit, Unabhängigkeit, Beweglichkeit und eine experimentelle Kreativität sind Anita Keckeis wichtig.
“Mein Ziel über das Entwerfen von Stickereispitzen und die Gestaltung von exklusivem textilen Schmuck hinaus, ist die Genre und Grenzen übergreifende Zusammenarbeit mit kreativen Menschen, die Begegnung von Mode, Malerei, Musik, Tanz, Theater, Film und Literatur” fasst Anita Keckeis die Vision ihres Labels zusammen.
