Students will gain valuable experience at the awards gala and fashion show in Cannes, France.

The Global Short Film Awards is pleased to partner with two dynamic student volunteer groups during its 9th annual awards and fashion show gala. The black-tie event will be held on 24 May 2024 at the iconic Carlton Cannes, concurrently with the world-famous Cannes Film Festival. The GSF Awards recognize excellence in short filmmaking, and the 2024 winners represent some outstanding works by filmmakers from around the world.

Participating in this exciting event will be:

1. Fashion for Futures. Under the leadership of CEO Ilyssa Wexler, and Professor at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in Florence, Italy, this program offers students a unique convergence of economics, backstage training, and business acumen within the fashion industry. This initiative provides a comprehensive understanding of the economic forces shaping the fashion world, equipping students with the tools to navigate and succeed in this competitive landscape. With a focus on real-world applications, Fashion for Futures emphasizes the importance of backstage training, where students gain hands-on experience in the logistical, production, and operational aspects of fashion. This approach prepares students for the complexities of the fashion business world, ensuring they become well-rounded professionals ready to make a significant impact in the fashion industry.

The benefit of this experience for the students outweighs any qualification, that industry experience is what gives the students the needed skills to seek future employment or entry into higher education (University). Samuel Warr, Course Lead, AS/A-Level Photography and Cynthia Langeveldt, International Brand Manager, Jera Creative Agency are coordinating this exciting opportunity for the students.
