The Italian Cultural Institute presents “Fare Cinema,” the first annual Italian cinema festival, taking place May 22 – 29. The festival features screenings of three acclaimed films and "Clothes vs Costumes" as a special event.

Costume Designer Anna Lombardi will illustrate the unique craft of a costume designer by examining the structure and methodology of the work and expertise it entails. As part of this lecture, she will analyze the difference between costumes chosen for a film set in a contemporary time period and one set in the 1950s. Photographs and film clips will be shown from the following films: "Brutti e Cattivi" (2017) by Cosimo Gomez and "Voice From The Stone" (2017) by Eric D. Howell, the costumes for both of which she designed. The reciprocal influence of fashion and cinema will be highlighted, as well as the close relationship the costume designer has with the make-up and hair stylists, photographer and director.
