MIPDOC and MIPFORMATS Move Officially to London
RX France, the organizers of MIPCOM CANNES, MIP LONDON, and MIP CANCUN, announced that the 2025 editions of MIPDOC (27th edition) and MIPFORMATS (15th edition) will join MIP LONDON in February.

MIP LONDON is a new international multi-genre content market, screening, and networking event set to launch in the heart of London’s West End from Sunday, 23 February to Thursday, 27 February 2025. The event will be held at the central Savoy Hotel and the adjacent IET London conference centre.

Recognized as the two leading international television business markets for the global documentary, factual, and formats communities, MIPDOC and MIPFORMATS have been key elements of the former MIPTV market, which held its final edition in Cannes in April 2024.

The MIP LONDON editions of MIPDOC and MIPFORMATS will take place on Sunday, 23 February and Monday, 24 February. These two days will focus on showcasing new content, gaining market insights, securing global distribution deals, and networking in person. Screenings and meetings targeting the unscripted community will continue throughout the five days of MIP LONDON.

“The biggest international week in unscripted is now in London with MIP next February,” said Lucy Smith, Director of MIP LONDON and MIPCOM CANNES. “We’ve received clear feedback from each genre community about the importance of maintaining MIPDOC and MIPFORMATS in the first half of the year. Unscripted is a growing part of the London events in February. By starting MIPDOC and MIPFORMATS ahead of the week, MIP LONDON helps meet this demand, gives unscripted buyers and producers a head start on the latest trends and potential partnerships, and further brings the MIP experience to London.”

MIP LONDON complements the existing February events, providing a central networking hub and international gathering point for the growing number of distributors, buyers, and producers worldwide who wish to have a presence and take meetings over the week. It is located less than a 10-minute walk from regularly used West End screening venues and event spaces. Further information can be found on the newly launched website here.

Running across five days, MIP LONDON will offer a comprehensive invitation program, providing free access to qualified buyers.

MIP LONDON is produced by the team behind MIPCOM CANNES, the flagship entertainment content market for the international TV industry, which was attended by over 11,000 delegates from over 100 countries in 2023. The 40th edition will take place in Cannes from 21-24 October 2024, with MIPJUNIOR, the annual meeting point for the Kids sector, returning to its traditional slot ahead of the market on 19-20 October, with a pre-opening afternoon on 18 October.
