Actual necessary complement to the International Cannes Film Festival, the Cannes Series Festival will take place for the first time in April 2018, it is now officially confirmed !
TV Series have taken such an importance in the international audiovisual sector that a dedicated festival had to be created to offer them an international, professional and popular recognition. It is now done and Fleur Pellerin, former Minister of Culture under François Hollande, has just been nominated to be in charge of the association for the organization of this first edition.
An appointment that pleases David Lisnard, current Mayor of Cannes, who has been supporting the creation of this festival since the beginning. Festival whose potential international reputation could be important for Cannes and for France, according to him.
Indeed, this is some great news for Cannes and we will be very pleased to welcome you next year for the opening of a festival to which we wish already all the best, as beautiful and successful as its cinematographic “older brother”.
We will of course keep you informed of the progress of the project so you can pre-book early enough your rooms in Le Cavendish and your apartments in La Villa Garbo and fully enjoy this first edition of the Series Festival.
