Documentary VERSAILLES 73 to Screen at Toronto Fashion Week
The new fashion documentary, VERSAILLES '73: American Runway Revolution," continues to build momentum, opening in three additional cities: Los Angeles, California (October 26 - November 1), Atlanta, Georgia (October 29 - 31), and Chicago, Illinois (November 7-8, 16 - 19). The film will also have a premiere screening on October 20th during Toronto Fashion Week in Canada. Having won the coveted CNN Outstanding Documentary Award as an official selection of the 2012 Martha's Vineyard African-American Film Festival this past August, the highly-anticipated project has been well-received by audiences and critics alike, creating a movement of tremendous support among fashion and cinema aficionados.
