For the 9th edition of Fashion Film festival Milano, in collaboration with Accademia Costume & Moda, an exclusive screening of ‘Slay’ will take place, as key documentary about the animal skins’ trade in the fashion industry, bringing together a host of celebrities, experts, campaigners, etc. to expose unethical practices whilst showcasing practical solutions.

On 14th of June after the film screening and within the frame of #FFFMilanoForGreen, Maurizio Montalti, together with Rebecca Cappelli, Slay’s Director, Filmmaker and Activist and Emma Hakansson, Founding Director Collective Fashion Justice and Author, will join a panel discussion focusing on how to rethink the fashion and the leather industries.

#FFFMilanoForGreen was instituted by Fashion Film Festival Milano out of the need to address the scale of environmental challenges caused by the fashion industry and with the aim to inform and educate sustainable innovations that solve them. The initiative has an important place in every edition with special screenings and talks that involve important players and activists who share their experiences and explain what acts are necessary to build together a better future.
