Out of Fashion wins Student Jury Prize

Jaak Kilmi and Lennart Laberenz’s documentary about fashion designer Reet Aus and her plan to save the world through sustainable fashion, Out of Fashion, received the Student Jury Award at the One World Film Festival in the Czech Republic. The festival took place March 7-16, 2016 in Prague and 32 other cities around the country. Editor Liis Nimik went to Prague to accept the prize on behalf of the team.

The jury writes: The film made students reflect upon overproduction, consumerism and waste of world’s resources in the fashion industry. This issue might not be one of the hottest topics currently discussed but it must not be overlooked as it is becoming more and more pressing. The main protagonist offers a simple and effective solution. It remains up to us whether we will embrace it or not.”
