From March 29 to April 2, 2013 the 26th Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will be hosting a display of fashion-
movies together with NYFFF (New York Fashion Film Festival). The guests of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia will be able to watch fashion-inspired works of Roman Polanski, Ryan McGinley, Steven Meisel.

This spring New York Fashion Film Festival announced partnership with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. Fashion lovers will receive a special gift: 20 most remarkable short films of the festival will be demonstrated on the large screen of “Manege” throughout all days of the Fashion Week followed by a special screening of the whole program of NYFFF in the Moscow Museum of Modern Art on Petrovka, 25.

New York Film Festival that managed to combine two world’s most popular genres – fashion and movie – began in 2011. Since then NYFFF features a selection of the year’s outstanding works and puts on the agenda fashion related topics. 2013 Festival program includes short films of Solve Sundsbo, Quentin Jones, Danny Sangra, Santiago & Mauricio, Steven Meisel, Inez & Vinoodh, Ryan McGinley and other contemporary painters, photographers and producers as well as movies shot especially for Prada, Kenzo, Opening Ceremony, Alexander Wang, Nina Ricci.

- The chance to focus on what fashion represents nowadays and face the fact that it goes along with so many stereotypes, is charming, - Roman Polanski admitted whose movie will be shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia in Moscow.

The short film “A THERAPY” by Roman Polanski starring Ben Kingsley and Helena Bohnam Carter successfully premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and later at the NYFFF depicts a story of a therapist who becomes enamored of the Prada coat belonging to his self-absorbed patient. You can also get a truly aesthetic pleasure from watching the Pierre Debusschere “The Lake” film with striking French Isild le Besco – one of the most prominent independent film personality of present time. And for those attracted by music-oriented fashion the program features a collaboration of Alexander Wang and South African hip hop sensation Die Antwoord directed by Daniel Jackson.
