IN-PERSON: September 23, 2023
ONLINE: September 24 through October 8, 2023

FashFilmFete (FFF) is an IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL film festival celebrating the history, and future, of fashion storytelling. Our mission is to curate a selection of Hollywood, indie, experimental and documentary films to showcase the significance of fashion in filmmaking. FFF will bring together a global community of fashion and film aficionados to explore style in cinema and its influence on pop culture, fashion design, contemporary art and beauty standards.

In addition to showcasing films that illustrate the role that fashion plays in helping tell a character's story, we also want to provide a platform for historically unheard voices of underrepresented people in film and fashion, specifically people of color and women. We are excited to invite you to join us on this journey as we explore the intersection of fashion and film.

For the second year, FFF will be held at the world renown Phoenix Art Museum, which boasts a fashion collection comprised of more than 4,500 American and European garments, shoes and accessories. It houses important fashions from the 18th to late 20th centuries and emphasizes major American designers of the 20th century including Adrian, Norell, Galanos, and Claire McCardell; and European Designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent. The museum has featured prominent exhibitions including Hollywood Costumes, A Tribute to James Galanos and The White Shirt According to Me. Gianfranco Ferré.


In order to participate, the entrants must submit a nonrefundable entry fee. All films submitted and accepted to FFF will be displayed to the jury for possible award recognition. Winners will receive an engraved award at the conclusion of the festival, will be listed on the FFF website and social media channels, as well as be included in all press materials.

• Best Documentary
