On-screen and off, the Miami Fashion Film Festival, hosted by Chambord Vodka, September 12-15, 2013, in Miami, Florida, captured the love of fashion with films and events that explored the art, culture, and business of fashion.

The 2013 films recognized as winners included: “Antonio’s Closet” (Founders Award), “God Save My Shoes” (Best Picture), “Runway Afrique” (Best Documentary), “I’ll Get There” (Best Fashion Short), “Blogging Behind the Seams” (Best Fashion Short - Audience Award), “Immortal Game” (Best Creative Concept), “Immortal Game” (Best Art Direction), “Steam 1886” (Best Costume Design), “Kubatek” (Best Fashion), “Elven Sky” (Best Fashion Styling), “Eden & The Swan” (Best Make-Up) and “The Waiting” (Best Hair).
“The Miami Fashion Film Festival offers us an opportunity to view fashion from another perspective. Film allows us to step back and observe the underpinnings of an industry whose backbone is highly creative in many forms,” says Grace M. Castro, the Founder of the Fashion Inspires More, a Miami-based fashion-infused nonprofit arts organization.
The four-day weekend of events added collaborative educational exhibits, fashion and film workshops, and “Facing Fashion” a Community Chat Series, with guest speakers to address prevailing topics in the Miami fashion community, all free and open to the community. The women and youth component of the Festival, hosted by the 4Girls Foundation, included a screening of Girl Model-The Movie and panel discussion with 50 young girls from neighboring youth centers to address topics such as body image, modeling, and sex trafficking.
Benefiting Fashion Inspires More, supporting partners included The Beacon Council, Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, Pop Chips, O Cinema, Institut Francais, The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Miami Film Month initiative.
