TOOK CINEFASHION’S TOP PRIZES FOR
BEST FASHION FEATURE AND BEST DIRECTOR FOR A FEATURE
PIERRE CARDIN HONORED WITH
THE “LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD”
19 DECEMBER 2019, Beverly Hills — “HOUSE OF CARDIN,” the authorized documentary on the life and work of iconic designer Pierre Cardin that had its World Premiere at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, took home three Cinefashion Film Awards including a sweep of the top awards for Best Fashion Feature and Best Director for a Feature Film (P David Ebersole and Todd Hughes).
Inspired by the film, Pierre Cardin was this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Mr. Cardin, 97, sent a video from Paris, acknowledging receipt of the honor. Rodrigo Basilicati Cardin, his nephew and the GM/artistic director of Pierre Cardin Paris, was on hand to accept on his behalf.
The annual Cinefashion Film Awards ceremony took place last Wednesday at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, and it will air on the Cinémoi Network January 12th, 2020.
In their acceptance speech, filmmakers Ebersole and Hughes addressed themselves as “just two boys who love Mr. Cardin” and spoke of the way in which spending a year following the nonagenarian has inspired their own lives.
“HOUSE OF CARDIN” screens next at the Palm Springs Film Festival in January and will be the Opening Night Gala Film of the Architecture Design Art Film Festival in February.
With sales in over 20 international markets via Doc & Film International, a worldwide release of HOUSE OF CARDIN is slated for 2020. The release is slated for late spring by distributor L’Atelier D’Images in France where Cardin lives and by I Wonder Pictures in Italy where he was born. The film will then roll out this fall to China (DDDREAM), Japan (New Select), Russia (Pioner Cinema), Germany (Koch Media), and more. The US rights for the film remain available, via Submarine Entertainment.
