This is a rather belated announcement, but don’t forget to attend the second weekend of the Fashion in Film Festival at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. Curated by Marketa Uhlirova and Christel Tsilibaris (and shown in London last year), it spans the history of film from the silents to the present day and shows more traditional features alongside experimantal shorts, documentaries, and video art. It is appropriately running concomitantly with a series of 16mm films by Andy Warhol—all starring Edie Sedgwick—any of which is sure to make for a more intersting viewing experience than the recently released film!
