For the schedule go here
The films in MoeKunstiKino are mostly documentaries that delve deeply into the background of the fashion industry. The main characters of the films are legendary fashion creators, photographers, editors and also beginning fashion personas.
It is important to understand that fashion does not equal seasonal trends and glamorous fashion shows, but it is a set of signs conveying different messages both on the personal and wider level. Fashion reflects any current affairs in the society. Fashion documentaries bring light to the backstage of this industry that touches everybody. They help you to get a better understanding of how and why the fashion world operates.
The author of the MoeKunstiKino idea and its coordinator is Helen Saluveer who has been selecting fashion films for the Estonian public for 15 years already.
