LOS ANGELES, May 21 /PRNewswire/ --

- Mini Movie Channel(TM), A Multi-Platform Brand, Launches Its New Service That Allows Viewers To Watch Globally Acquired High Production Value Short Films And Original Comedy Programming At www.MiniMovie.com

Mini Movie International Channel, a multi-platform new media company, launches its English language destination website at http://www.MiniMovie.com today. Mini Movie Channel streams high production value short films and offers interaction with film fans and filmmakers worldwide. The site presents a wide selection of works and instant exposure for noteworthy independent shorts. MiniMovie offers a vehicle for budding filmmakers to gain broad visibility, and the company is developing a slate of sensational originals by Famous Face Productions (FFP) that satirize today's biggest stars.

MiniMovie fulfills acclaimed Russian film/television producer (REN-film/REN-TV) and media magnate Dmitry Lesnevsky's vision of an immersive cinematic experience with an ironic attitude. Lesnevsky's award-winning feature films include "The Return" (2 Golden Lions/Venice Film Festival) and "The Banishment" (Best Actor/Festival de Cannes).

Today, Mr. Lesnevsky unveils exclusive short comedies featuring a proprietary digital effects technology that offers humorous twists on the celebrities and politicians we have all come to know and loathe. Star Imitation Systems (SIS), makes its debut today with two short productions (including "Putin on the Ritz") that present MiniMovie's philosophic and comedic take on cinema, celebrity, and the media in general.

In addition to Famous Face Productions, http://www.MiniMovie.com features a vast international library chosen not only for its high production value but for its storytelling and cinematic innovation. Today's launch offers the first step towards a global short film network, as Mini Movie Channel will extend its brand with launches in France, Germany and Russia this summer.

Mini Movie Channel is a subsidiary of Mini Movie International Channel, which is headquartered in Luxembourg, with offices in Paris, Moscow, and Beverly Hills. Mini Movie Channel will combine all possible methods of content delivery to create its own global audience from traditional television, to IPTV to mobile TV and beyond. Mini Movie Channel is also actively seeking branded entertainment opportunities with global brand advertisers wishing to connect with its desirable demographics.
