Chanel Continues To Support The Museum Of Modern Art Films With Fall And Winter Engagements

The SAG-AFTRA strike stalled the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) film benefits sponsored by Chanel this year.

However, after the strike being called off last week, Chanel is back to supporting MoMA films.

This iconic fashion brand has been the lead sponsor of MoMA films since 2020. However, the association of MoMA and Chanel started back in 2011.

This year, Chanel is to maintain its support for MoMaA films with many fall-winter activities. 

The Contenders is a public screening series of the Museum of Modern Art. This series is sponsored by Chanel, and the series completes its 16th year this time.

The screening will have some of the most appreciated films of the year. However, this year, the screening of the movie is going to be different.

There will be a lot of interactions with the actors and crew members of the films after the screening.

Rajendra Roy, the chief curator of films at MoMA, says, 

“We have just launched MoMA’s The Contenders 2023 made possible by Chanel, which is our annual survey of the most exciting new films of the past year, which will now happily feature appearances by actors as well as writers, directors and other members of the crew.”

So, what are the films to be screened at MoMA public screening? The films to be screened are:

  • Barbie – 30th November
  • Poor Things – 5th December
  • Nyad – 13th December
  • Passages – 14th December
  • Priscilla – 18th December

Post-screening, there will be interactions with cast and crew members of every film. The names to join these sessions are Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, Yorgos Lanthimos, Tony McNamara, Jimmy Chin, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, and Ira Sachs. 

There is another thing MoMA is coming up this year for the lovers of film music. Rajendra Roy says, 

“Beginning Dec. 1, fans of movie music can experience a retrospective of the work of one of the world’s greatest film composers — Ennio Morricone. The series will open with a new restoration of ‘Cinema Paradiso’ and include such classics as ‘Once Upon a Time in the West,’ ‘The Thing,’ and ‘The Untouchables.’
