FashFilmFete Celebrates Fashion Storytelling Premieres at the Phoenix Art Museum
The inaugural event will screen 21 films from around the world, including documentaries about fashion designers Elie Tahari and Lea Gottlieb, founder of Gottex Swimwear.
PHOENIX, 15 Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Early bird passes to the FashFilmFete™ are on sale through Feb. 28 via www.phxart.org/show/fashfilmfete-celebrating-fashion-storytelling. Regular sales begin March 1. The event celebrates fashion storytelling with a mission to create a diverse platform for filmmakers of all backgrounds, especially those historically underrepresented in the film industry, such as women and people of color.
FashFilmFete™ founder Mignon Gould, who founded archived style and entertainment magazine TheChicSpy.com, was inspired to launch the festival after featuring interviews with film and fashion insiders including costume designers Madeline Fontaine (Jackie), Catherine Martin (The Great Gatsby) and Academy Award-winning Michael O’Connor (Jane Eyre).
The festival takes place on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. MST at the Phoenix Art Museum. Gould chose the museum because she believes fashion and film are unifying art forms that provide an opportunity to share diverse perspectives, with fashion being “the one art form that everyone participates in” , says Gould.
“The Phoenix Art Museum is thrilled to host FashFilmFete,” said Helen Jean, Phoenix Art Museum Fashion Design Curator Jacquie Dorrance. “We hope people across the Valley will join us in celebrating these new cinematic works that explore fashion in film.”
