BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK opens this week

An audience favorite at last year's festival, and winner of our Best Storytelling in a Documentary Award, BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK opens in select theaters this week. Richard Press's documentary follows New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham, a man obsessively interested in one thing: taking pictures to document the way people dress. Cunningham lived in the same small studio above Carnegie Hall for 50 years, never eats in restaurants, and rides a rickety bicycle. The film features New York fixtures such as Anna Wintour, Tom Wolfe, David Rockefeller, Brooke Astor, and Annette de la Renta. With the singular goal of capturing the beauty that crosses his path, Cunningham has created a poignant and ongoing chronicle of the intersection of fashion and society in New York over 50 years—in effect, a portrait of New York City itself.
