Fashion and film have long intertwined, though never in the context of a women-centric festival and conference mash-up – until now. The inaugural Women and Fashion Filmfest, titled Lights, Fashion, Action! will kick off June 8 in New York City. In an effort to build a more cohesive community among the media and fashion industries, threaded by the common cause of women’s roles within them, this occasion will serve as multi-event platform including panel discussions, film screenings and a Q&A. Among the many industry luminaries who will contribute, Patricia Fields will serve as a panelist in the discussion, Women and the Business of Fashion and Stuart Weitzman’s short film series Walking After Midnight, directed by James Franco, will be screened. FIT students are also invited to submit fashion-related short films, of which a select 4-5 will be screened at the festival.
The event will take place on June 8-9 at Scandinavia House on 58 Park Avenue, New York.
