Pleasantly surprised to discover that 50 of this years Short Film entries for the Sundance Film Festival are available online for viewing. Nice touch by the festival organisers and film producers. Also noticed in this weeks IHT that British fashion designer Ozwald Boateng‘s entry into the US market will be the subject of an eight part documentary. The series titled ‘House of Boateng’ will premiere on the Sundance Channel in June. Given the noticeable resurgence in interest of all things bespoke and tailored in my travels of late it should make for interesting viewing.
“When I moved here, the international profile of Savile Row was zero,” says Boateng. “Yet the suit was born on Savile Row. In Britain we don’t shout enough. So I took it on myself to make it known to the world.”
