Movies about fashion and beauty, and an art for art program by Chanel at Tribeca Film Festival
'Dior and I' is one of 12 non-fiction films at this year's competition at Tribeca Film Festival (New York) which runs from 16 to 27 April 2014. The movie about the work of Belgian designer Raf Simons at the French couture house Dior is the opening film of the World Documentary competition on 17 April; it's the world premiere of the documentary 'Dior and I'.
By looking through the extensive program of this year's Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), most of the featured movies are world or North American premieres. Not all of the movies - fictional and non-fictional (documentaries), are part of competitions such as the (world premiering) documentary about music icon 'Super Duper Alice Cooper', directed/written by Reginald Harkema, Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn. The documentary about the man behind Alice Cooper's makeup, Vincent Furnier is listed under the 'Spotlight Section' where world premieres of movies such as 'Boulevard' with Robin Williams or US premieres such as the French production 'Bright Days Ahead' with Fanny Ardant in the main role can be found.
Partner of the TFF competition (12 narrative and 12 documentary films) is another French fashion house; Chanel sponsors the Artists Awards program. Winners will receive additionally to cash prizes artworks such as Matthew Modine's photograph of Stanley Kubrick's director chair, on view at the art listing on tribecafilm.com.
