MIPFormats 2019 -  The Fifth Format Awards go to Facing the Classroom and Giggle Gallery To coincide with MIPFormats 2019 in Cannes, TV France International and La Fabrique des Formats have just announced the winners of the fifth Format Awards. Recognizing the French format which has sold most widely abroad and the most innovative format, the awards this year went respectively to Facing the Classroom and Giggle Gallery.
An Honorary Format Award was presented to Fort Boyard to mark its 30th anniversary.
“Well done to the sales companies and producers involved in this year’s winning formats. Originality, audaciousness and humor are clearly the distinctive signs of French creativity, and these are values which translate well to the international marketplace. We here at TV France International are delighted with these winners and continually strive to promote such talent throughout the world,” said Sarah Hemar, Executive Director of TV France International.

Philippe Chazal, CEO of La Fabrique des Formats said: “Since its creation in 2016, the main aim of La Fabrique des Formats is to promote the French Touch in all types of audiovisual format projects. We are thrilled to reward the great skills and the artistic abilities of these authors, producers and distributors which contribute to promote the French Culture.”
