The six Style In Film features this year are:
Advanced Style (trailer): A documentary that examines the lives of seven unique New Yorkers whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to aging.

Handmade with Love in France (trailer): This film charts the work and gradual demise of French artisans’ workshops that are essential suppliers for haute couture fashion houses such as Dior and Channel.

God Help The Girl (trailer): Eve’s a troubled young girl who also has a talent for singing and song-writing. Music leads her to Glasgow where she meets James and Cassie, two kindred spirits each at crossroads of their own. What follows is an uplifting and stylish pop musical filled with renaissance, friendship and romance over a long, dream-like summer.

The Two Faces of January (trailer): The film stars Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst as tourists who get to know a tour guide in Athens played by Oscar Isaac. All three are put in danger after an incident at the hotel, and the suspense builds from there.

In the Name of My Daughter (trailer): Inspired by the true case of Agnes Le Roux, a young, glamorous heiress, the film tells the story of her disappearance in the late 1970's after becoming embroiled in a Mafia-backed plot to force her mother Renée to sell the family casino on the French Riviera.

Looking for Light: Jane Brown (trailer): This is a moving portrait of Jane Brown, a life-long photographer for the Observer newspaper who has photographed famous subjects like John Lennon and The Queen. The film examines her quiet determination working in an almost exclusively male world and how the sorrow of her early childhood influenced her unique photographic style.

In addition, VIFF is holding a contest for all the attendees of the Style in Film Screenings. Dress up in your most glamorous attire and share your most fabulous selfie at the events for a chance to win an outfit courtesy of ‘Judith & Charles”.
