Miami Film Fest to partner with Fashion in Film

November 9th, 2018 No comments

Miami Design District and Miami Dade

 

College’s Miami Film Festival

 

Announce Collaboration on Fashion in Film

 

Program for 2019 Festival

 

Curated by Marketa Uhlirova, Fashion in Film Festival,

University of the Arts London

 

 

Miami, FL — Miami Design District (MDD) and Miami Dade College (MDC) announce a new partnership to present the acclaimed Fashion in Film Festival, curated by Marketa Uhlirova, University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins, in the Miami Design District as part of the upcoming 36th edition of Miami Film Festival, March 1 – 10, 2019.

 “Cinema at its best takes us to places of wonder, and for our next edition Miami Film Festival will take cinema to a new place of wonder: the Miami Design District, one of Miami’s coolest neighborhoods,” said Miami Film Festival executive director Jaie Laplante. “We are thrilled to be expanding the 36th edition of the Festival into this oasis for culture, art, food, fashion, and film.”

“Every year Miami Dade College’s Miami Film Festival puts on an extraordinary and surprising program. This year, the Miami Design District is honored to co-present and host the Fashion in Film Festival through this collaboration and partnership with the Miami Film Festival and Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London. We are grateful to Cathy Leff for helping bring Fashion in Film to the District and this new and exciting partnership with the Miami Film Festival,” said Craig Robins, President & CEO of Dacra, the real estate development company behind the Miami Design District. “The District serves as a center for high fashion, luxury and design.  It also is a vibrant cultural hub where creative and enriching programming comes to life that serves our community. I couldn’t think of a better place for Fashion in Film to take place. Get your tickets early.”

This special Miami edition of the London festival takes place during the final weekend of Miami Film Festival, March 8-10th.The program will consist of a specially curated program comprising screenings, performance, panel discussions, and chats that explore the intersection between fashion and cinema. The program will be presented at Nite Owl Theater and in Paradise Plaza, a popular convening place within the District.

“For Miami, I am interested in staging a speculative dialogue between cinema, fashion and art – as three areas of creative practice that are normally seen as separate – to consider different kinds of intersections and continuities among them. Looking at the entire history of cinema it is evident that fashion and dress have been among major concerns for filmmakers and artists working in the medium of moving image. There has been great interest in the rituals of dressing, undressing, and posing; in self-fashioning and physical transformation; in the decadently pleasurable qualities of decorative surfaces, in the poetry and uncanny tension between the organic and the artificial body – and that of disembodied clothes that assume a life of their own,” commented curator Marketa Uhlirova, co-founder and director of the annual London festival.

While the full line-up of Fashion in Film will be unveiled in late January, Uhlirova, Laplante, and Leff divulged details of the program’s opening event taking place on March 8th. In collaboration with London composer, music producer, and filmmaker Rollo Smallcombe, Uhlirova will present The Inferno Unseen, their own assemblage of rushes from the kinetically experimental visuals of Henri-George Clouzot’s The Inferno, starring Romy Schneider, one of the most tantalizing uncompleted projects in film history. Smallcombe will accompany the presentation with live music. A Festival party on the rooftop deck of Paradise Plaza will complete the evening.

Miami Design District and Miami Film Festival’s announcement was unveiled at a reception in one of the future venues for the program, Nite Owl Theater, and was accompanied by a screening of James Crump’s new fashion documentary Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion & Disco, courtesy of Film Movement.

Miami Film Festival is the only major film festival produced and presented worldwide by a college or university. MDC is also home to the renowned Miami Fashion Institute which has also used film as a teaching tool with its popular film series.

Tickets for Miami Film Festival, including the Fashion in Film program, will go on sale to Miami Film Society members exclusively on Friday, February 1st and to the general public on Friday, February 8th. Tickets: 1-844-565-6433 (MIFF) or miamifilmfestival.com .

At the heart of its mission is archival and scholarly research, combined with accessible and wide-reaching debate. The program draws on a rich history of the moving image and brings together documentary and fashion films, commercials, newsreels, early cinema and experimental film as well as classic and forgotten gems in European, American and World cinemas. Through a focus on fashion and film costume, the festival mixes the worlds of cinephilia, popular culture, design, art and the underground.

Interdisciplinary by design, Fashion in Film promotes collaborations and dialogue between curators, historians, archivists, fashion designers, artists, filmmakers, musicians and writers, aiming to explore the connections between moving image and clothing, and more broadly, questions of design in film.

Angela Baumgardner will play Anna Leonowens and Pedro Ka’awaloa will play the King of Siam, with DeAnna Choi as Lady Thiang, Bern Tan as Kralahome, Paulina Yeung as Tuptim, Dongwoo Kang as Lun Tha, Timothy Matthew Flores as Prince Chulalongkorn, Hayden Bercy as Louis Leonowens and Stanton Morales as Captain Orton/Sir Edward Ramsey.

 

Pedro Kaawaloa

The ensemble includes Catrina Teruel Clark, Raymond Dimaano, Atsushi Eda, Cj Fernando, Jenna Ho, Masumi Iwai, Anjali Kanter, Akina Kitazawa, Keiji Kubo, Kylie Kuioka, Catherine Landeta, Jee Heng Liao, Linder Sutton, Tsubasa Ogawa, Soraya Patoonsittichai, Trevor Roderick, Richel Mari Ruiz, Pepita Salim, Annie Sherman, Kayla Rachel Teruel, Matheus Ting, Hiroko Uchino, Dax Valdes and Eliot Waldvogel.

 

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

 

In the words of Bartlett Sher, director of the 2015 Broadway production and the first national tour, “Great classics come back to us when we need them the most. In order to live up to the scale of its ambition, we have to go both backward and forward in time. It’s like having one foot in the past as deeply as we can, one foot in the present, and our eyes looking out as far ahead as we can to see how it resonates.”

 

Tony Award®–winning director Bartlett Sher was reunited for The King and I with the award-winning creative team from the Lincoln Center Theater productions of South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. The creative team for this new tour includes direction by Shelley Butler, based on Sher’s original direction, featuring sets by Michael Yeargan (Tony Award® winner for South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza), costumes by Catherine Zuber (seven-time Tony Award® winner, including The King and I), lights by Donald Holder (Tony Award® winner for South Pacific and The Lion King), sound by Scott Lehrer (Tony Award® winner for South Pacific), musical supervision by Ted Sperling and casting by Jason Styres, CSA. Choreography is by Tony Award® winner Christopher Gattelli (Newsies), based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins. The production features the musical’s original 1951 orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennet with dance and incidental music arranged by Trude Rittmann.

 

Tour director Shelley Butler says, “Now feels like the perfect time to bring forward this powerful story with its depiction of clashing cultures and its journey toward understanding. It is a great pleasure to helm the tour with a dynamic cast of 33 actors, including an array of international company members. It is an honor and a privilege to continue the vision of Bartlett Sher and the brilliant Lincoln Center Theater creative team.”
