24-Hour Exquisitely Innovative Network Dedicated to Curated Films, High Coutureand International Lifestyle with Movies from Such Illustrious Vintage & Modern Stars as Bardot, Deneuve, Hayworth, Monroe, Nicholson, Palance and Pitt

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Having earned such enthusiastic supporters as Martin Scorsese, Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Jane Birkin, Michael Caine, Martin Landau, Jacqueline Bisset and so many more, Cinemoi has now officially premiered on Verizon FiOS.

The internationally-acclaimed lifestyle channel will be available to Verizon FiOS customers on channel 236.  "We are excited to introduce Cinemoi into the homes of FiOS customers," said Dan Bushansky, Director of Verizon Content Strategy & Acquisition. "Verizon continues to add unique, compelling content to FiOS, and Cinemoi is another example of our commitment to our customers."  

A 24-hour network featuring curated films from around the world and high couture festivals new to the U.S. television market, Cinemoi will be nestled among AMC, FX Movie Channel, IFC, Sundance Channel and Turner Classic Movies.

"We're committed to offering high-quality entertainment with unparalleled style and elegance and believe that Cinemoi, once again, will become a network of choice for a breadth of American viewers, for those who fondly remember us from last year, new viewers who affectionately recall the Golden Age of Hollywood, and contemporary audiences," offered Rod Sherwood, CEO of Cinemoi North America.

More than just a "movie channel," Cinemoi is aimed at discerning viewers who aspire for enticing and sophisticated entertainment. It offers a lens to the world at large—reintroducing American audiences to outstanding contemporary and vintage films and transporting them to the most glamorous world events and exotic destinations.  Elegant in tone, Cinemoi is defined by high-quality content in contrast to sensationalized, manufactured reality shows. U.S. viewers will enjoy daily afternoon and evening movies, primarily in English, ranging from CineEpics to CineFemmeFatale, CineDramas, CineRomance and CineMidnight, to CineFilmNoir, CineBioDocs, CineRebels, CineCouture and CineIcons.

At the launch press conference (soon to be announced) Cinemoi will highlight such films as "Contempt" (50 Year Anniversary) with Brigitte Bardot and Jack Palance, "Dangerous Beauty" with Naomi Watts and Jacqueline Bisset, Roman Polanski's "Repulsion" with Catherine Deneuve, "Gilda and Lady from Shanghai" featuring screen siren Rita Hayworth, modern dramas such as "Two Lovers" with Joaquin Phoenix, "Redacted" by Brian De Palma, "Fellini: I'm A Born Liar" by Damian Pettigrew, "Alegria" with Oscar® winner Frank Langella and award-winning contemporary movies such as "Five Easy Pieces" with Jack Nicholson.

With its own top-quality in-house production arm, Cinemoi is also creating a slate of original programming. Seeking to be a preferred TV destination, Cinemoi goes behind the scenes of major global film festivals including Berlin, Cannes, London, Rio, Toronto, and Venice. In addition, once a week the network will feature a premiere of film festival winners in partnership with Film Festival Flix, as well as interviews with the talent behind those movies and exclusive Red Carpet moments.

Traversing fashion weeks from New York to London, Milan to Paris, the channel's CineCouture programming profiles fashion icons such as Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, who called Cinemoi "the most stylish channel." Cinemoi will also visit culturally rich destinations (CineCities) and profile the world's top chefs and most exquisite restaurants (CineCuisine). Additionally, Cinemoi will offer "Stars of the Silver Screen," a one hour series spotlighting exclusive one-on-one interviews with top actors and filmmakers. 

Cinemoi Kids airs—along with family-oriented movies in the afternoon, early evening and weekend slots—children's morning programming daily, including such beautifully-crafted European animation as "Babar," "Magic Roundabout," Jacques Cousteau's "Ocean Tales" and "Lucky Luke." Special programming also includes "Earth From Above," CineGreen documentaries, which entertain, educate and inspire by highlighting the achievement of the human spirit to heal the planet.

"We envision Cinemoi as a home for excellent programming, a magnetic destination for quality-seeking audiences. Our mission is to provide a window to a world of curated films, romantic and sensual adventures, elegant and exclusive world events," stated Daphna Edwards Ziman, president of Cinemoi North America.  "We're excited to launch on Verizon and look forward to other milestones in the months ahead."

The creative force behind the U.S. launch of Cinemoi, Ziman is a diversely experienced music label founder, film and television executive, and critically acclaimed New York Times best-selling author who discovered Cinemoi while on a European tour to promote her novel, "The Gray Zone." The European network had already established a reputation, since its May 2009 launch, as a coveted entertainment brand recognized for outstanding programming, expertly curated films and successful collaborations with the finest talents across entertainment, fashion, art and culture. Ziman reimagined Cinemoi for U.S viewers as a more accessible and innovative network, whose website (www.CinemoiUS.com) provides a global platform for much of its best programs. 

Through a partnership with the former Westwood One Chief and DIRECTV executive Rod Sherwood, who serves as the chairman and CEO, and with Oliver Bengough, the British- based entrepreneur and owner of Mint Entertainment, based in the UK, the vision of Cinemoi North America is a reality. Included in Team Cinemoi is Noreen Harrington, former chief of hedge funds at Goldman Sachs, whom Ziman describes as "the wind beneath our wings."

Now, Orbit Pictures, Inc., has chosen Cinemoi as a first step to expending their presence on television. "From the days of Metromedia, quality media has been a passion for me and my family," said Charles Fries, President of Orbit. "It is with this kind of passion that we decided to support and help grow Cinemoi's presence in the domestic and international markets with the intention of using the network as the cornerstone of distributing to raise the bar for media that matters on television, here and across the globe."—
