On September 29, 2016, London will host The Commissioners, in partnership with Studio Spaces, the first of a new series of events for the creative circle. Starting at 7pm at Studio Spaces, fashion film consultant and co-founder of Berlin Fashion Film Festival Niccolò Montanari will explore gender, femininity and beauty through a panel with Kathryn Ferguson, resident film director & consultant at Selfridges, producer Shabana Mansuri and trans activist Charlie Craggs.
The event is the first of a series of monthly events for brands, filmmakers and producers aimed at shedding light onto the behind the scenes of the lifestyle-driven video industry. The format will involve screening outstanding video content and inviting the creative team behind it to an open discussion as to what made it successful, how the idea came about and how the concept was initially presented to the brands in question.
The Commissioners, in partnership with Studio Spaces, will also function as a networking platform for creatives looking for collaborators and potential new clients. Commenting on the event, founder Niccolò Montanari said: “The Commissioners was born out of the filmmakers’ need to gain valuable insights into how the industry works and to help them connect with producers and brands. This is a unique opportunity for people working with this type of video content to meet in private and discuss new topics and ideas”.
