Elegant in tone, Cinémoi is defined by highquality content, and offers a lens to the world at large – re-introducing American audiences to outstanding vintage and contemporary films, and transporting them to the most glamorous events and exotic destinations.

Having earned such enthusiastic supporters as Monica Bellucci, Jane Birkin, Jacqueline Bisset, Michael Caine, Vincent Cassel, Martin Landau, Martin Scorsese, and so many more, the internationally-acclaimed lifestyle channel, aimed at discerning viewers, is a 24-hour network showcasing curated films and high couture festivals new to the U.S. television market.



Cinémoi launched the INTERNATIONAL FASHION FILM AWARDS (IFFAs), the first in a series of original live event programming. This inaugural annual awards show celebrated the winning movies from Fashion Film Festivals worldwide.

The IFFAs took place on July 27, 2014 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, and were broadcast on Cinémoi on August 3, 2014. The awards gala was produced by the team behind top live Hollywood awards events, with a guest list of top figures from both the worlds of entertainment and fashion.

The nominated films were selected and curated by a distinguished jury of elite figures from the field of fashion with the winners announced during the awards celebration. The IFFAs have become one of the world’s most glamorous events, marrying the magic of filmmaking and the art of haute couture and design.



The International Fashion Film Awards Arrival Special captured all the Red/White carpet action and aired on Cinémoi as a 30-minute special prior to the world premiere of the International Fashion Film Awards show. The talent and fashion elite walked the Red/White carpet and feel like they’re on the streets of Paris as they arrived, with Parisian street lamps and a white carpet creating elegance and glamour. The carpet featured a “press line” with multiple platforms for interviews with media from all over the world. Cinémoi had multiple positions on the carpet with celebrity hosts meeting guests as they arrived on the Red/White carpet for the Arrival Special.


We’re all made of dreams.

The exclusive couture runway presentation was born out of a fusion between Cirque du Soleil and Cinémoi, both sharing a passion for evoking emotions, invoking memorable experiences and remaining at the leading edge of creativity and innovation. And for these two inspirational brands to collaborate was instantly organic, seamless, and a cultural sensation given their shared core values.

"Fashion" is a direct inspiration from the vivid, playful costumes that adorn the performances of Cirque du Soleil. The details and handcrafted prints are executed with the most painstaking care while conveying an artisan feel. With its tribal, vibrant looks, it feeds from the multicultural aspects of the shows while remaining closely aligned to Cinémoi’s DNA.

The International Fashion Film Awards featured a unique and exclusive performance inspired by the Cirque du Soleil collection; fashion and apparel that were a joy to produce and a celebration of fashion, theatrics and creativity. Each garment in the collection features a small piece of costumes worn by a Cirque du Soleil artist, a testament to Cirque du Soleil’s authenticity and the magic of Cinémoi.

The IFFA’s were honored to showcase the fashion, costumes, make-up and personality from the Cirque du Soleil shows. The creativity of Cirque du Soleil was apparent in each and every one of the garments and accessories in the collection: they express the rich colorful characters of the different universes, the originality of the costumes and, above all, the vast array of emotions drawn by the shows. An amalgamation between art, design, and entertainment.

The Fox Wilshire theatre — now the Saban Theatre — is a classic Los Angeles landmark and peerless example of the Art Deco style. Designed by renowned architect S. Charles Lee, it opened its doors in September of 1930, and for its first fifty years served as one of LA’s foremost movie palaces, hosting the premieres of such films as “How to Marry A Millionaire,” starring Marilyn Monroe, “Man of La Mancha” and “The Sound of Music.”

The Saban Theatre has continued to be an esteemed, vibrant live performance location for all kinds of top-tier comedy, film, music, and television events.



SIXTY Beverly Hills, the official hotel of the IFFAs, will be hosting a VIP Reception and Celebration with canapés prepared by Celebrity Chefs and served to 200 invitation-only guests following the ceremony at the exclusive ABOVE SIXTY Rooftop Lounge.
