The Bokeh South African International Fashion Film Festival has become the most creative and inspiring Fashion Film Festival globally. The festival brings together creatives in the Film, Fashion, Artistic and related technical industries to celebrate their craft twice a year.

The 2014 – 2018 festival events held in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, have consistently delivered a world class platform for both local and international speakers, film makers, fashion designers and guests to mingle, sip champagne, indulge in the finest food and take in the inspiring Fashion Films on offer.

Bokeh 2018 took the festivities up a notch by fostering the all important relationships among designers, film makers, producers and clients. The Red Carpet Gala Events in September took place over a 2 week period at the Carrol Boyes Showroom in Cape Town and Shepstone Gardens in Johannesburg. Both Cities are already top destinations for fashion shoots and prime locations for international film crews and both have a wealth of local talent in both the fashion and film industries. These events have provided the perfect opportunities to marry these two thriving industries in the cities.

Film Submissions to the festival are open for 2020.

We look forward to welcoming you to the most entertaining Fashion Film Festival in the World!
