Even if your idea of high fashion consists of jeans and a hoodie, there’s still plenty to recommend about this three-day film festival celebrating the life and accomplishments of fashion designer Charles Kleibacker, who served as adjunct curator of design at the Columbus Museum of Art prior to his death in 2010 at the age of 88.

Included are screenings of “Versailles 73,” “Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel” and “Valentino: The Last Emperor 2008.”

If you can only hit one of the three flicks, make it “Versailles 73,” since director Deborah Riley Draper will be in attendance to discuss the film following Friday’s screening.
