In the "Cannes 2016 Awards Ceremony" Cinémoi provides exclusive "front-row" seats in the U.S. for the Closing Ceremony festivities of one of the most glamorous events in the world, featuring multi award-winning Director/Producer/Writer George Miller -- known for the "Babe," "Happy Feet" and "Mad Max" franchises, and so much more -- presiding over this year's 69th film festival jury.

ABOUT CINÉMOI

 

Cinémoi is an internationally renowned network that features films, couture and lifestyles for viewers with discerning taste.  

 

It’s a multi-genre network that skews toward women, with vintage to modern films, fashion ranging from the Red Carpet of the Met Gala to the Cannes Film Festival, as well as compelling original series, including "Falcon," "Lucan," and "Underbelly: Razor," the "Jonathan Ross Show" and compelling green content.

 

Cinemoi's President, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Executive Daphna Edwards Ziman and her team meticulously select and curate high quality programming for the network that takes its viewers to exotic destinations and provides impactful social media, community affairs and marketing campaigns that tie in fashion and supports women.

ABOUT DAPHNA EDWARDS ZIMAN

 

Cinémoi's President, Cofounder and Chief Creative Executive, Daphna Edwards Ziman, is passionate about the channel, one of just two networks in the U.S. owned and operated by women, and an internationally-known supporter of issues important to women and children. 

 

Ms. Ziman is also on the board of Children Uniting Nations, a charity that benefits children in foster care. http://www.childrenunitingnations.org/ She is also active in the Jewish community in Los Angeles and was recently awarded the Humanitarian Award at the 2016 Israeli Film Festival awards luncheon held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles.

 

Additionally, recently speaking in Washington D.C., Ms. Ziman alerted the FCC to the danger of oligopoly in the cable and satellite industry where a small handful of media giants control over 80% of the content available to the American public. This blocks access and competition by independent, minority and women-owned networks such as Cinémoi.

 

“Every owner of a television network and every cable operator is a gatekeeper to the communications media," said Ms. Ziman. "As such, we all carry a fiduciary responsibility to the public. Cinémoi’s number one priority is to broadcast innovative and quality programming to our viewers."  

 

As such, Ziman continues to be a formidable advocate in Washington D.C. on behalf of independent and women-owned networks.
