MIPTV confirmed for 2024 in April

MIPTV confirmed for 2024 in April
MIPTV has celebrated its 60th edition this year with a big positive new. After being cancelled due to the pandemic, and living uncertain times last year, the onsite participation in the Spring International Content and Co-Production Market has grown in a 20%. Figures released on the final day of the annual Spring market confirmed 5650 participants from 86 countries including 5510 delegates in person in Cannes - an increase of 1000 onsite participants vs 2022 – and 120 delegates joining the market through the MIPTV online platform.
The increase in participation in this year’s market underlines a robust content sales and acquisitions climate, a rapidly developing international FAST channel business and positive response to the newly reformatted exhibition layout and schedule in the Palais des Festivals introduced in 2022, which, combined further, affirms MIPTV’s position each Spring as the biggest global television content market after MIPCOM CANNES.
“We have found the right format and scale for MIPTV and its working” said Lucy Smith, Director of RX France’s Entertainment Division and Director of MIPTV and MIPCOM CANNES. “The increased attendance and robust exhibition confirm that the design and focus is paying off for all. The benefits to all of having the international industry in one place to discover, connect and acquire is magnified by trends such as increased licensing to third parties, the pace of growth for FAST Channels internationally, and the ongoing hunger for, and necessity of, co-production partnerships - themes we will further build on at MIPCOM CANNES in October,” she added.
RX confirmed that the next edition of MIPTV 2024 will take place on April 8-10, PRE-MIPTV on April 6-7, 2024 and MIPCOM in October 21-24, 2024.

During the session called MIPFORMATS Pitch presented by MIPTV and FOX Alternative Entertainment (FAE), and moderated by Maria Chiara Duranti, Chief Editor of Formatbiz, the format Show Must Go On from Turkish company formatworkshop has won the competition. They won a prize of US$5000 for development and the opportunity for "Show Must Go On" to be pitched to global buyers as part of FOX’s $US100 million International Unscripted Format Fund.
The Turkish format was chosen from the five finalists who all presented original unscripted entertainment formats on stage in the Palais des Festivals to a jury chaired by Allison Wallach, President, Unscripted Programming of FOX Entertainment, with John Hesling (EVP Head of Fox Alternative Entertainment), Yasmin Rawji (Executive Vice President, Unscripted – Network, of FOX Entertainment) and Nathalie Wogue (Consultant, International Format Strategist, FAE) in a session moderated by Maria Chiara Duranti (Chief Editor, Formatbiz) in Cannes on day one of MIPTV.
On the other hand, in the MIPDOC International Buyer Screenings Coup De Coeur it had a dead heat. The factual reality Prison Project Little Scandinavia from SVT, Sweden and The Caravan from Cabal Films, Spain have won.
