BA (Hons) Fashion Media Part Time student Gsus Lopez has just won the prestigious Grand Prix Award for Best Film at ASVOFF in Barcelona. His film, Ephemeral Nature, has won the top award at the event that was held at the end of January. When asked about his win, Gsus said:
I thought it was amazing to have been selected by Diane Pernet under the Official Selection category. It feels great to have such good recognition when you’ve worked so hard for so long and with so many limitations, mainly economic, it pays off more than you could imagine.
ASVOFF (A shaded View of Fashion and Film Festival) was launched in 2008 by Diane Pernet, a world-renowned fashion critic and video journalist based in Paris. Since its launch, ASVOFF has been instrumental in promoting a new creative genre, the ‘fashion film’, by providing a platform for the work of filmmakers who explore the themes of fashion, through the medium of the moving image.
