I Colori Di Antonio Screening

Readers in New York City might be interested in a film screening happening this April 3rd at 7pm for I Colori Di Antonio (a film about the Florentine tailor Antonio Liverano). The event will take place at the School of Visual Arts’ Beatrice Theater, which is located at 333 West 23rd Street (between 8th and 9th Avenue). After the screening, there will be refreshments and a Q&A session with Antonio Liverano and the director Gianluca Migliarotti. Tickets can be bought here, and a webpage for the film can be found here

Films about Italian Tailors

The long awaited Men of Cloth film is premiering in New York next month. The film is about three Italian tailors facing the decline of the apprenticeship system. Traditionally, very young men (often children, really), enter the tailoring trade at an early age, but with growing opportunities elsewhere, fewer and fewer have gone into tailoring, which has left many master tailors without students. This particular film focuses on three men: Nino Corvato and Joe Centofanti, who are both traditional custom tailors in the US, and Checchino Fonticoli, who has spent his entire career at Brioni.

The film is premiering on November 19th and 21st at New York’s Documentary Festival (Doc NYC). You can buy tickets here, and see the trailer here. Some other interesting documentaries will be at the festival, which you can browse here. Seems like it could make for a fun activity if you’re in town. 

Also, in case you’re unaware, our friend Gianluca Migliarotti (who directed and produced O’Mast) recently came out with a documentary on Florentine tailor Antonio Liverano. I had the opportunity to see it some time ago, and it’s a great film. Recommendable to anyone passionate about Italian tailoring, bespoke clothing, or even just traditional men’s style in general. You can see the trailer here. DVDs can be bought from The ArmouryExquisite Trimmings, or The Hanger Project

O’Mast Kickstarter Campaign and First Screening
O’Mast, the long-awaited documentary about Neapolitan tailoring, just started a Kickstarter campaign. If you’ve been reading men’s style blogs for any period of time, you’re probably already familiar with the film. If you’re not, however, you should immediately check out the trailer. I also conducted an interview with the director, Gianluca Migliarotti, which you can read here.
The film is finished, but the director needs some funds in order to pay for some postproduction work that has already been done, make the DVD, and go on tour for some screening parties. I can’t express enough how important I think this film will be, and how much recognition it deserves. To my knowledge, there are no other films about Neapolitan tailoring, and this one captures some of the most important figures in the region. 
Any donation will be accepted, but certain pledges will be met with special gifts. Perhaps most notable is that a pledge of $25 will get you a copy of the DVD. Heck, at that point, you’re just buying an advanced copy of what’s sure to be a popular film.
Finally, if you happen to live in New York City, I have some really exciting news. The first screening of O’Mast will be held at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, the home of the Department of Italian Studies at New York University. The screening will take place on November 30th at 6 PM. You can see it on the department’s calendar of events. I don’t know how many seats the venue accommodates, so to be safe, I would recommend you show up early.
