For the past few years it’s been my goal to create a fashion film festival, and now I can happily share that the inaugural fash.film.fête. (FFF) is coming to Phoenix, Arizona.
In collaboration with friends and colleagues Jeanne Hankerson of SJ Couture and Amelia Walsh of The Marry Mart, TheChicSpy.com is presenting a two-day event in March 2020 to join filmmakers, cinephiles and fashion enthusiasts in exploring the history of fashion storytelling.
Our mission is to curate a selection of indie, documentary and Hollywood films, as well as ad campaigns and music videos to showcase the significance of fashion in filmmaking.
Would the iconic Audrey Hepburn have been so memorable in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” without her classic little black Givenchy dress and opulent Tiffany baubles?
Could F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” come to life so eloquently in both Jack Clayton (1974) and Baz Luhrmann’s (2013) renditions without the sartorial help of Ralph Lauren and Prada, respectively?
Thankfully, we will never know, because the producers of these films understood all too well the significant impact fashion has on film.
We are excited to invite you to join us on this journey where we explore the intersection of fashion and film–whether it’s a feature film for Hollywood or short film for a clothing brand, fashion is instrumental in filmmaking.
Stay tuned for more information to come soon. If you are a filmmaker, film submissions will be accepted starting July 8, 2019 on Film Freeway.
