The Fashion Show:

At the BMVA, it is recognized how impactful fashion is on the Music Video world, which is why talented designers are invited to participate and showcase their alternative designs at the main event, right on The Glittering Carpet for all the guests to see. It’s a great opportunity to connect designers, production companies, directors, models and musicians, and bring the next fashionable music video or performance to life!

The Glittering Carpet is the BMVA version of the red carpet where the press and the winners are able to meet up for interviews. Each year a unique and flashy vehicle is selected to bring our special guests to the venue, showcasing the car and intricate outfits the guests arrive in. A grand entrance for the show-stopping event to come.

The AI Conference:

On June 16th, as part of “Experimental Culture Day”, the first-ever BMVA AI summit will be held. The discussion will focus on the impact of AI on creative processes in music videos, balancing artistic vision with AI capabilities, ethical considerations in using AI-generated content, and the incredible potential of the technology.
