Early bird passes for 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, specifically 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 Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. MST at 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 in which everyone participates,” Gould says.
“Phoenix Art Museum is excited to host FashFilmFete,” says Helen Jean, the Phoenix Art Museum Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design. “We hope that people throughout the Valley will join us as we celebrate these new cinematic works that explore fashion in film.”
