Stars from film, television and fashion kicked off New York Fashion Week Wednesday night at the 18th annual black-tie soiree for amfAR — one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to support AIDS research, HIV prevention and treatment education.
The glitzy fundraising party at Cipriani Wall Street consisted of a steak dinner, a performance by singer Charli Xcx and Icona Pop, a live auction and a tribute to Harvey Weinstein for his efforts to end the AIDS epidemic. The Academy Award-winning film producer has been supporting amfAR since 1992, and has helped raised millions for the foundation.
“It’s an incredible honor to receive an award from amfAR, because it’s such an important cause that I believe in,” Weinstein, 63, told Variety on the red carpet. “I’ve received awards before, but this one is special because my mom is here tonight. She’s turning 90 next week. But honestly, I don’t deserve it. »

Disney will continue box office domination with the January 29th release of The Finest Hours. It is the incredible true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most dangerous sea rescue. The film is an adaptation of the best selling book by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. In the winter of 1952, a powerful nor'easter capsized the oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of intrepid sailors, led by Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), took a rescue boat into the storm.
Movieweb was invited to the set of The Finest Hours in Quincy, Massachusetts in November of 2014. The production was fairly secretive at this point. Apart from the title, which was obviously correlated to the book, I had no idea what to expect on this trip. What we saw that day was knock your socks off amazing, filmmaking on an epic scale.
