"Anyone Can Inspire You" 

Every year, on Opening Night, film inspired dresses are revealed at our Opening Night VIP Reception. Each dress is intricately designed and handmade by local designers Mindy Fisher and Betz DeMonico who craftly weave the story and message behind the films into unique works of art.

The idea is to bring an immersive dimension to the films and to have attendees pause and look into the issues the films are centered around.

Film Ambassadors wearing these original creations will be at each film screening and throughout the festival. They will be able to help with any film or festival related questions. Keep an eye out for them and share your photos with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
