We’ll be playing the inspiring films on the Big Screen throughout March.
The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Fashion Film Series is presented by Emporium Melbourne and RUSSH Magazine.
The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival wants you to explore and push the boundaries of Australian fashion.
As part of the Fashion Film Series, you can submit a short film to the panel of judges. Ten top films will play on the Big Screen at Fed Square, online at russh.tv and as preludes to feature films showing at ACMI and Val Morgan Cinemas throughout March 2014.
The films will also screen on the Chin Chin Wall of Art in Melbourne, across regional areas of Victoria in Bendigo, Ballarat, Mildura, Castlemaine and Rutherglen, as well as interstate in Sydney during March 2014.
Entries close on Thursday 30 January.
The Fashion Film Series is presented by Emporium Melbourne and RUSSH Magazine, supported by Fed Square, Val Morgan and ACMI.
More than just a big TV, the Big Screen is our portal to the world. In 2012, screens in Fed Square, Seoul and Perth helped us host a Gangham-style dance competition. In 2009, screens in Incheon and Fed Square were connected in a world-first live link-up where participants conversed through SMS texting to the screens.
These projects and many others have been used as case studies in a new paper for Theory, Culture & Society (SAGE Publications). Fed Square program manager, Matt Jones contributed as well as Melbourne University Assoc. Professor Scott McGuire and many others.
