Olivier Nicklaus, New Artistic Director of the Festival

Moritz Feed Dog 2024 comes loaded with innovations, marking the definitive leap for the event, having become a fully consolidated appointment in the Barcelona cultural scene in recent editions.

Olivier Nicklaus, director of some of the most significant fashion documentaries in recent years – “Fashion!”, “Azzedine Alaia, un couturier français” in 2022, or “Versace, les liens du sang,” to name just a few – is the new artistic director of the festival. Olivier’s addition represents an invaluable opportunity to internationalize the festival’s perspective and open the door to new proposals to be included in the festival’s programming, thanks to his experience and profound knowledge of both fashion and film.
