The Cinderella Exhibit at the Berlin Film Festival Takes You Inside the World of the Film

The Berlin Film Festival is in full swing and we’re so excited because the festival is hosting the European premiere of the live-action Cinderella! In honor of the premiere, there’s a beautiful exhibit that takes you behind-the-scenes of the production of Cinderella, and shows just how this classic fairy tale was reimagined for the big screen. The exhibit is also where the nine designer Cinderella-inspired shoes are being displayed for the first time! Here’s a look at the amazing details:


Mary Blair’s iconic concept art can been on display, as well as the animated film’s original poster.

And of course, no Cinderella exhibit would be complete without the real glass slipper, created by Swarovski for the film.
