Featuring style icon Daphne Guinness, and curated by cult fashion curator and blogger Diane Pernet, A Shaded View on Fashion Film will take place November 9 -11 in Paris.

Founded in September 2008, A Shaded View on Fashion Film is the world's first major fashion film festival. Returning every year to Paris, the festival has also travelled around the world, visiting cultural capitals including Mexico City, Vienna, Copenhagen and Moscow. Previous jury members include Rick Owens, Bryan Adams and Dita Von Teese.

Held at the famous Pompidou Center in the middle of Paris, the festival awards a number of prizes, including awards for Best Emerging Talent sponsored by fashion video site nowfashion. This year's jury will be presided by conceptual artist Orlan, and will also feature editor Tim Blanks and photographer Dominique Issermann.

Daphne Guinness will introduce avant-garde director Joe Lally's film No Nirvana of Cooldom in which she stars and sings a piece on the soundtrack from her new album. Famous French photographer Dominique Issermann will show a collection of 8 music videos shot on her iPhone, soundtracked with songs from Leonard Cohen's latest record, Old Ideas.

Lally is a member of SHOWstudio, the award-winning fashion website, founded and directed by photographer Nick Knight, and he and Guinness previously worked together on The Black and White Maze of the Painted Zebra.

Previously a fashion editor for, and ZOO Magazine, Diane Pernet founded her blog in 2005, and rapidly became one of the internet's most trusted voices for her quietly voiced yet authoritative avant garde fashion opinions. With her distinctive black lace look she is a highly visible star on the style scene.
