Elegant in tone, Cinémoi is defined by high-quality content, offering 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 many more, the 24-hour internationally-acclaimed lifestyle channel is aimed at discerning viewers, showcasing curated films and high couture festivals new to the U.S. television market.
Originally launched on DIRECTV on September 17, 2012, Cinémoi is now on Verizon FiOS, Channel 236, nestled among AMC, FX, IFC, Sundance and Turner Classic Movies.
"Verizon continues to add unique, compelling content to FiOS, and Cinémoi is another example of our commitment to our customers," said Director of Verizon Content Strategy & Acquisition Dan Bushansky. ”We offer high-quality entertainment with unparalleled style, and for a breadth of American viewers – those who fondly remember the Golden Age of Hollywood, and contemporary audiences as well,” stated Rod Sherwood, Cinémoi Chairman and CEO, and formerly Westwood One Chief and DIRECTV executive.
Cinémoi viewers enjoy daily afternoon and evening movies, primarily in English – ranging from CineDramas to CineEpics, CineFemmeFatale, CineMidnight, and CineRomance to CineCouture, CineDocs, CineFilmNoir, CineIcons, and CineRebels – and featuring titles including ‘Contempt,’ starring Brigitte Bardot and Jack Palance, ‘Gilda’ and ‘Lady from Shanghai,’ spotlighting screen siren Rita Hayworth, Roman Polanski’s ‘Repulsion,’ starring Catherine Deneuve, ‘Sherrybaby,‘ with Maggie Gyllenhaal, ‘The Future We Will Create: Inside the World of TED,’ and ‘Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends.’
Additionally, Cinémoi airs ‘Stars of the Silver Screen,’ a one-hour series of exclusive interviews with top actors and filmmakers including Charlie Chaplin, Gene Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jimmy Stewart and Elizabeth Taylor; ‘Movie Stars,’ featuring talent like Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, and Will Smith; and ‘In Conversation,’ with names including Terry Gilliam, John Hurt, Ben Kingsley, and Mike Newell.
And a highlight of the Cinémoi weekend programming is our exclusive in the U.S. airing of the ‘Jonathan Ross Show’ on Saturday nights,‘ featuring the internationally-lauded host, and a guest list with talent from David Beckham to Sandra Bullock, Eminem to Gordon Ramsay, Justin Timberlake to Oprah Winfrey.
Cinémoi is also creating a slate of original programming, with its own top-quality in-house production arm, and is behind the scenes of major film festivals such as Cannes, London, and Sundance, as well as broadcasting the Cannes Award Ceremony festivities exclusively in the U.S. In 2014, the channel produced and aired its first annual International Fashion Film Awards show (IFFAS), which honored top fashion filmmakers and icons, and featured special performances, including those by Mark Ballas and Cirque du Soleil. And traversing fashion weeks across the globe, the network profiles fashion world legends such as Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, who called Cinémoi “the most stylish channel.”
The network also features once a week 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.
And in the afternoon, early evening, and weekend slots, CineKids airs, along with family-oriented movies and CineGreen documentaries, which entertain, educate and inspire by highlighting the achievement of the human spirit to heal the planet.
“We see Cinémoi as a home for excellent programming – a magnetic destination for quality-seeking audiences, on our channel and our website (www.CinemoiUS.com). Our mission is to provide a window to a world of curated films, romantic and sensual adventures, and elegant and exclusive world events,” said Daphna Edwards Ziman, president of Cinémoi, North America.
