• THE LOFT CINEMA 3233 East Speedway Boulevard Tucson, AZ, 85716

This March, Film Fest Tucson and Tucson Fashion Week will exclusively screen the Arizona premiere of the new documentary, THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY at the Loft Cinema! The film takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the creation of the annual, and ultra exclusive Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

A very special thank you to our sponsor / Baker + Hesseldenz.


The First Monday in May follows the creation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's most attended fashion exhibition in history, "China: Through The Looking Glass," an exploration of Chinese-inspired Western fashions by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. With unprecedented access, filmmaker Andrew Rossi captures the collision of high fashion and celebrity at the Met Gala, one of the biggest global fashion events chaired every year by Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Featuring a cast of renowned artists in many fields (including filmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano) as well as a host of contemporary pop icons like Rihanna, the movie dives into the debate about whether fashion should be viewed as art.
