Fashion In Film Festival: Birds of Paradise

What are you doing Friday?  If you love costume and movies, the Fashion in Film Festival is running April 15th through May 2nd for true geeks. Their tagline promises “a major extravaganza in costume spectacle, dance and diabolical glamour”.  How can you resist that?

Birds of Paradise  “highlights those episodes in cinema history which most distinctly foreground costume, adornment, and styling as vehicles of sensuous pleasure and enchantment.”  The festival explores underground film, silent films.  Archival examples demonstrate how fashion and costume have showcased movement, light, theme and aesthetics since the beginning of cinema.

The events take place at the Graduate Center at City University of New York and is hosted by the Museum of the Moving Image.
