Save the Date: Screen Style at Northwest Film Forum

Seattle's first-ever fashion film series was curated by yours truly for the Northwest Film Forum. You're going to want to be there on December 7, 8, and 9.

Strath Shepard selected the 1960 film Purple Noon.

Quick: What's the most stylish movie you've ever seen?

I'm not really talking about movies like The September Issue or the Diana Vreeland documentary, I'm talking about movies that speak to you—directly or abstractly—about the way that clothes and character interact. 

About the way your clothes and your character interact.

That's what I was talking about when the Northwest Film Forum and I decided to collaborate on a mini-fest of sorts called Screen Style.

From Friday, December 7 through Sunday, December 9, the favorite style films of four hand-picked tastemaking Seattleites will screen at the Cap Hill reel house, and you're invited to be there as we talk to them about what they see in the characters, the drama, the tension, the setting, the genre, and yes, the clothes.

Land Management creative director Strath Shepard, who is also a creative director at Nordstrom and one of the eyes behind Pacific Standard magazine; visual artist and Style Counselor Anna Telcs; Reel Grrl director and Seattle Met featuree Robin Held; and Totokaelo owner Jill Wenger made this year's selections. 

(Yeah, "this year's;" I, for one, am already certain we'll want to do this again.)

Stay tuned to this channel as we reveal more about the movies in the series, the idea of style in films in general, and the all important logistical matter pertaining to you, a movie seat, a box of popcorn, and a couple of really inspiring hours.
