The way a performance, a ballet or a play comes together is really something of a miracle. So too the art and arrangement that goes into achieving the effects, scene and atmosphere on screen for film and TV. To honor the magic, DCIFF is presenting two “Behind the Scenes/In Front of the Camera” events at the lovely building that is the Arts Club of Washington DC.
The first is the exceptional costume design talent of Amy Andrews Harrell who has received numerous awards for her work on both Civil War/Reconstruction era films (Little Women, The Good Lord Bird, Lincoln, Mercy Street) and more contemporary dramas (Imperium, Killing Kennedy and the upcoming The Black Phone).
Join us to learn about Amy’s work, her experience on set and working with actors and directors (most recently Ethan Hawke). Amy will bring some of her designs to share and explain how costuming works through film clips.
July 14th: (6pm drinks, 6.45pm illustrated conversation followed by an open discussion, $13 inclusive)
