Bengaluru will host the first GreenStitched Film Festival featuring a day-long screening of documentaries on sustainable fashion on February 18. The event, supported by National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) Bengaluru, will be held at its auditorium in HSR Layout.
The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry next only to oil. Still awareness on the environmental and social impacts of this 1.2 trillion dollar industry is lacking. Through the GreenStitched Film Festival (GFF), the organizers aims to bridge this gap and will invite students, academia, industry professionals and anyone curious to be a part of it.
The audience will also get to interact with the directors and people associated with the films being screened. Sustainability is at the forefront of fashion industry. By supporting an event like the GreenStitched Film Festival, NIFT Bengaluru is involving the academic and industry community to understand the nuances surrounding sustainable fashion,” feels Professor Shivalingam, Director of NIFT Bengaluru.
