The 2013 Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF) has started and there is such an amazing array of international films on offer that I spent several hours reading the program and debating with my sister about which films we are going to see. One of the films that would interest any fashionista is an American film by director Matthew Miele called ‘Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s‘.
Even if you can’t afford to shop at Bergdorf Goodman’s store in Manhattan, New York, everyone around the world knows that it is synonymous with high end fashion labels. This documentary gives us mere mortals a look inside the luxury store with interviews from the likes of Rachel Zoe and Vera Wang.
“The legend, the parties, the fashion idols, the windows, the women, the buyers and shoppers — and most of all, the quintessentially American dreams of New York’s high-fashion hot-spot.”
So Much To See At BIFF
Obviously there are heaps of other great films on offer so make sure you check out the program!
I am also excited to see Big Sur (about writer Jack Kérouac, as he attempts to escape the overwhelming success of literary fame and struggles with alcoholism) and The Congress (where Robin Wright plays herself in an alternative reality where ageing actors can create eternally youthful virtual copies of themselves but sign over more than they bargained for, with live action and animation).
What are you excited to see?
