With our Fantastic Fashion theme program – on the role costumes and styling play in the creation of the fantastic illusion – we are very proud to welcome Lindy Hemming as a guest of honour during Fantastic Film Festival 2017.
Costume designer and Oscar winner Lindy Hemming (James Bond, The Dark Knight and Wonder Woman) will be a guest of honour during the Imagine Film Festival 2017. Hemming will present a masterclass for a general audience. Aided by working drawings and other materials, she will talk about her work and how her designs have helped shape the fantastic character of films. A selection of her design sketches will be exhibited in the public area of EYE during the entire festival.
