>> Last night Tanner Hall, the first film written and directed by Tatiana von Furstenberg (daughter of Diane) with her best friend, Francesca Gregorini, had its New York premiere as part of the Gen Art Film Festival. The movie, which follows a coming-of-age story of four friends at an all-girl New England prep school, features school uniforms designed by Diane von Furstenberg and stars Rooney Mara, Brie Larson, Amy Ferguson, Amy Sedaris, Tom Everett Scott, Chris Kattan and Georgia King.
The premiere came fresh off the news yesterday that the film was acquired and will be released in the United States in the late Summer; it will also be shopped for international distribution at the Cannes Film Festival next month. After the premiere, Diane tweeted, "I am proud of Tatiana and Francesca .. Movie played very well.. Cannot wait for the movie to open to the public!"
