Second Annual Miami Fashion Film Festival in September 2014
September 11 to 14, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque
1130 Washington Ave.
For the second year in a row, two beautiful media come together in an exciting combination-films and fashion. Screenings, panels and parties are all on the schedule, and even an art exhibit! Tickets to films are $12. Offerings include short and feature-length documentaries. Get an inside look into the world of fashion, from the creative process to the politics behind what we wear.
Most screenings are followed by a panel discussion, which gives fans of cinema and couture an even more in depth behind the scenes view into both movie-making and the design industry. On Sept. 11, see two documentary shorts, The Style Kind and Sunshine Chic, each focused on Miami's local fashion and innovative trends. Startup is the New Black follows several local designers navigating their new businesses. On Sunday, the feature documentary is Kapital World. It follows Kapital's lead designer Kiro Hirata over five days working in France.
Sept. 12 includes a screening of The Politics of Fashion: DC Unboxed, plus a fashion photography exhibit in the evening. The next day, there will be a whole slew of short films that touch upon fashion is some meaningful way. Advanced Style, by Lithuania-born filmmaker Lina Plioplyte documents the lives of seven fashion-forward New Yorkers. Closing parties and awards ceremonies take place on Sunday, the last day of the festival.
This year's Festival will be a benefit for Fashion Inspires More, a nonprofit that expands the dialogue about fashion with education, technology and art. For more information on the Miami Fashion Film Festival, visit http://miafff.com/ or call (786) 440-6091.
