Any excuse to organize acool film festival is a good excuse. We especially love festivals centered around niche or offbeat themes. (Like the amazing G.I. Joe Stop-Motion Film Festival we wrote about earlier). And what other city than Paris could best serve as the host for the upcoming Shaded View On Fashion Film Festival (Sep 25-27: Palais de Tokyo/Centre Pomidou). “Fashion film, a genre which not too long ago was barely on the radar, is now booming,” it says on the website. Yes, fashion has embraced the film medium for reasons “too numerous to list”. Program is diverse and looks exciting. So if you’re in the area, slip into your best frock, don your shiniest suit and join the other fashionistas for this style-smitten film fest. Want a li’l preview? Watch La Grande Bouffe online – a short by Swedish director Erik Liss selected for the fest. How veryF-F-Fashion!
