The BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a dynamic addition to the international film festival circuit and one of the UK’s largest and most exciting film festivals to programme a fashion film strand, supported by London College of Fashion. ASFF 2015 will continue the dynamic series of masterclasses, Q&As and introduced fashion film screenings creating many networking opportunities for emerging and established filmmakers to get their work noticed by industry and build their contacts list.
