Madrid Fashion Film Festival Pride

Jun 29, 2017

Rules are necessary for the development of a society, if they did not exist we’d miss the pleasure of breaking them, the thought behind Victor Claramunt’s, Breaking Rules fashion film. A thought that falls into the theme of this year’s fourth edition Madrid Fashion Film Festival. World Pride takes place only every four years and in special circumstances two and Europride’s location is selectively chosen to a city with a strong LGBTQ community.

This year Madrid has the honor of hosting both the biggest events for the LGBT community in the world. A community that has influenced much in our world and broken rules of society to show new light, is the center of recognition in Madrid this year. The Madrid Fashion Film Festival is happy to extend the celebration, with a theme committed to this lively, equal, plural and free culture.

With selected LGBTQ films scheduled to show, the finale presentations of Carol by Topacio Fresh, Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures by Luis Venegas, and Strike a Pose, will also be recognized. The contribution this community has made to the fashion world is one that made the unconventional lifestyle of the LGBTQ community progress the strive in the fashion world to make unconventional fashion and art. Their flamboyant world journeys alongside the fashion world. Continuing to make fashion, always in the newest way and in a way others may see as art. Fashion film works to showcase individuality as does this community

Fashion film is defined as an amorphous concept, meaning without a clearly defined shape or form. LGBTQ which is now used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, is a term that continues to grow with inclusion and not exclusively specify any part of their community. Like fashion film the LGBTQ community is amorphous, it is each its own entity and strives to be just that and proud of it.


Think about where we would be without the great LGBTQ influencers of our world; Valentino Garavani, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander Mcqueen, to name a few. Even the ideas of designer Coco Chanel, who started the wear of men’s clothing for women, not yet accepted at her time. The progress we’ve made to the today’s androgynous fashions are due to the progression of acceptance and their influence. This year’s Fashion Film festival will highlight the great work of the fashion community along with its influencers.
