Frustrated not to have been able to discover your batch of new series, at Mania series festival this year ? After the cancellation of the 2020 edition due to confinement, we now learn that the Mania 2021 Series will be held from March 19 to 27, in Lille and in the Hauts-de-France region.
“We have seen in recent months a major evolution in the audiovisual fiction landscape. First, a significant increase in the volume of series, which requires guiding the audience throughout the year “, explains Laurence Herszberg, Managing Director of Mania series in the official press release. “Secondly, the emergence of new working methods stemming from the crisis, which both reinforced festivals as essential meetings, but also affirmed the importance of online tools. Finally, the need expressed by the sector to bring out more new voices, new talents and new projects, but also the need for European industry to consolidate its market and its international network. “
In passing, the festival reveals the creation of the Mania Series Label, to support the general public: “The Séries Mania team watches hundreds of new series from all five continents all year round. In this bloated world, the festival will now offer its recommendations on a permanent basis to guide the public, by strengthening its digital presence, the posting of video content and the organization of year-long previews in Lille. “
