Films about a Japanese fashion designer, a globally known jeweler, India's last poster painter and more...

Apart from the bunch of film events happening this month, including the Asian Film Archive's Asian Restored Classics, there's more to look forward to once we hit September. One of the most stylish (even the tickets are sexy) and highly anticipated film festivals, A Design Film Festival returns with screenings spread across two venues and two weekends.

Happening at Capitol Theatre on Sep 3-4 and at Shaw Theatres Lido on Sep 9-11, the festival, which is now in their sixth year, features eight films picked from 130 submissions, all reflecting the current landscape of design across various creative disciplines, like fashion design, sound design, graphic design and even social design.

This year, there won't be another re-run of Dior and I like last year, which happened to be the festival's most popular film in 2014, but there are some other similar behind-the-scenes films you'll probably want to catch. To satisfy the fashion-hungry, catch the Southeast Asian premiere of Yohji Yamamoto | Dressmaker, which tells the story of one of fashion’s boldest designers. If you've always been fascinated by diamonds and jewelry—more specifically Tiffany & Co.—you’ll want to watch Matthew Miele’s documentary Crazy About Tiffany’s about how a humble jeweler in New York became the icon it is today.

There will also be copies of the films available for purchase. For a full list of films, visit their website. Tickets are $15 each, and can be booked online.
