The MIPTV, from 3 to 6 April 2017 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes attracted a plethora of international TV stars on the Croisette who were promoting the series they star in.
MIPTV, the largest annual event market for audiovisual program, created in 1964, was held on April 3-6, 2017 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, one month before the famous Film Festival. Many international stars have made the trip to the Croisette to promote their series and walk the Red Carpet of the opening night at the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez.
Preceded by MIPDoc
The MIPDoc, which took place on April 1 to 2 at the Marriott Hotel, is an international documentary and report tradeshow that takes place each year in Cannes, the weekend preceding MIPTV. The MIPDoc offers an unrivaled platform for presenting documentaries and reports to producers and distributors with 30,000 screening seen by 400 buyers from 53 countries. This year, we attended the world premiere of the a 4K splash in Big Pacific, where the stars are the animals that inhabit the world’s largest ocean.
Cannes Series, International Series Festival
The International Program Market, which brings together more than 11,000 participants and 4,000 buyers on 20,650 m2 of exhibition, played the world première with the British series Riviera, shot on the French Riviera. We were seduced by the historic blast of Knightfall, the glory and decline of the Templars by A + E Network. Call My Agent on France 2 shows the tragical-comical vicissitudes of artistic agents. Babylon Berlin takes us to the places of perdition in Germany during the rise of Nazism and Communism at the end of the Roaring Twenties, on the sound of charleston. Finally, we welcome the birth of Cannes Series, the International Series Festival that Cannes is organizing next year in parallel with MIPTV, launched by Mayor of Cannes David Lisnard, its President Fleur Pellerin and Reed Midem CEO Paul Zilk.
Red Carpet at Hôtel Martinez
The opening night was held at the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez. After signing many autographs to the crowd of fans massed behind the barriers, the stars took the pose in front of the “branding board” of the MIPTV where the flashes of the photographers of big agencies were waiting for them to immortalize this parade of actresses and cctors acting in television series from around the world.
