Mustafa Özen is a film historian/curator and currently working for the EYE Film Institute Netherlands. He received his PhD from the University Utrecht and published numerous articles about early cinema in various academic journals. Nowadays he is very much interested in the current development of the so-called 'fashion film'. His film 'MODE/FASHION/FILM' is a compilation of historical fashion films from the collection of the EYE Film Institute and contemporary work of a group of young generation Dutch fashion filmmakers/designers/artists. The aim of the compilation is to give an understanding of the notion of the 'fashion film' from the very beginnings to now, and at the same time to reflect the historical and contemporary material on each other.
