France named as MipTv 2019 country of honour in Cannes.

The most awaited week in the entire TV industry!

More than 10,000 professionals from the audiovisual industry meet at the Palais des Festival et des Congrès de Cannes  every year to discover new content and follow the latest trends. MIPTV has been able to establish itself as “the great place to be” for entering into partnerships and negotiating funding, distribution or co-production agreements.

International market and content creation forum for all screens

A major rendezvous for the creation, co-production, purchasing, sales, funding and distribution of audiovisual and online content on all media, it is during MIPTV that the agreements are reached that will shape the future, whether this means initiating new projects or purchasing next season’s hit. An exceptional event that brings television and digital decision-makers together in one location with those from major brands, advertising and technology suppliers. 

France named as MipTV 2019 Country of Honour

France is consistently among the leading delegations at MIPTV with 535 companies and 1,420 participants attending the 2018 edition. Among French companies exhibiting at MipTv 2019 : ARTE France, Cyber Group Studios, Gaumont, Federation Entertainment, France TV distribution, M6 Metropole Television, Millimages, Newen Distribution, Canal+ Group, TF1 Studio, Wild Bunch, About Premium Content, Banijay, Mediawan, Orange, Lagardère Studios, PGS Entertainment, Futurikon, Mediatoon, ZED….

While overall international sales have doubled over the past eight years, French animation confirmed its leading position. More and more French-made series of all kinds are traveling the world, reaching international audiences. Series like “Le Bureau des Légendes” (The Bureau) or “Midnight sun” (TV France Export Prize 2018) are paving the way to other consistent successes of drama series like long running “Candice Renoir”, sci-fi “Missions” or political fare “Baron Noir”.

 Other previous Countries of Honour and Country Focuses at MipTv include China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Turkey, Nordics (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden), Mexico, Israel, and Argentina.
