Vikram Bawa becomes the first Indian to be nominated to International Fashion Film Awards

Vikram Bawa’s fashion film ‘The Long Show’ has been nominated for the International Fashion Film Awards (IFFA) 2014 to be held in Los Angeles, USA, from July 24th to July 26th, 2014.

The film has been nominated in two categories – Best Art Direction and Best Music Nomination. This is the first time an Indian photographer/film maker has been invited and nominated at these prestigious awards.

‘The Long Show’, made for his friends, renowned fashion designers Falguni & Shane Peacock is being screened at the ongoing La Jolla Fashion Film Festival, USA, with the presentation of the IFFA in the 500 seat theatre at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, California.

Speaking about the nomination, Bawa said, “It’s an honour to be nominated amongst other prestigious nominations along with some of the biggest photographers, film makers and artists like David Zimmerman, Ellen Von Unwerth, Nadav Kander.”

He added, “It is the world’s largest gathering of fashion filmmakers with Hollywood insiders, fashion media, bloggers from around the world, Industry Networking, Panel Discussions & Seminars, Red Carpet and press receptions, Awards and After Parties and is known as the Cannes of fashion films. Only the top 1% of fashion films around the world are shown at the Festival. I hope to make India proud.”
