ON THE SCREEN: Bloomingdale’s has long taken fashion cues from movies, but now the retailer is giving something back by participating in the Hamptons International Film Festival, where five new short films commissioned by the store will screen at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, with a Q&A with the directors afterwards. The films debuted at Bloomingdale’s last month as part of the store’s “Lights; Camera; Fashion” campaign. The movies were produced in partnership with Young Indies Films. “It’s part of Bloomingdale’s DNA,” said Jack Hruska, executive vice president of creative services, “to uncover new talent whether in fashion or home, or, in this case, entertainment.” The films are: “My Adventures in Ladies Undergarments, 4th Floor” directed by Antonio Campos; “The Love Game,” directed by Andrew Hunt; “Recession Special,” directed by Emily Abt; “Tall Enough,” directed by Barry Jenkins, and “Tea for Three,” directed by Amy Redford.
