Launch your career • Get recognized • Network with fashion and film insiders

The Seattle Fashion Film Festival strives to foster the growth of the fashion film industry, uniting the worlds of filmmaking and fashion.

SIFFF brings this medium to the Seattle area to encourage its continued evolution with a Pacific Northwest influence.

SIFFF is connecting fashion designers, photographers, stylists and retailers with outstanding filmmakers, to create engaging cinematic experiences.

All fashion film creators are welcome to submit and everyone is welcome to attend!
Fashion and entertainment industry professionals will be in attendance. Join the other fashion films produced worldwide at the annual Seattle International Fashion Film Festival.

From our neighbors in Seattle to the fashion capitals of the world, we will come together to network, attend seminars & panels, screen films, participate in the after party and win awards. The films that make it into the final program will represent some of the most brilliant and creative directors in filmmaking today. Curated from the dynamic and the exploding world of fashion film, are a glimpse of what’s trending in the minds of the world’s top fashion houses, designers, and stylists interpreted through the lens of their filmmaking counterparts.

Our Guest List is made up of invited:
• Filmmakers and Celebrities
• Industry Professionals
• Global Media
• Venture Capitalists and Financiers
• Studios and Production Companies
• Creative Professionals
• Sponsorship Guests

This year’s designated SIFFF charity, Seattle Children's Hospital, is especially close to our hearts, because our founding director’s life was saved shortly after birth by physicians at Seattle Children's Hospital. Now, as an adult, she is eager to give back to the hospital to help ensure world class medical care for other seriously ill children.

Best Film will receive a trophy for their achievement and all award winners will receive their award certificate.

Awards will be selected by our jury and audience ballots will be tallied for the audience choice award.
