Series Mania not only caters to TV professionals but also hosts numerous events for the general public. Traditionally, screenings are free and open to a wide audience.

This year, the TV industry and the festival itself are facing challenges due to international crises. However, efforts are being made to maintain balance through the participation of new nations stepping in for traditionally strong ones.

Artificial Intelligence continues to have a growing impact on the creation and regulation of TV series. This topic will be discussed at the 2024 Lille Dialogues summit, as it was during the Hollywood writers’ strike.

The importance of the Series Mania Institute, which focuses on training future television professionals, is greater than ever. The institute aims to equip students from around the world and the Hauts-de-France region with the necessary skills to tackle tomorrow’s challenges, regardless of their academic backgrounds.

Anne Bouverot, President of Series Mania and President of Technicolor Creative Studios, along with Laurence Herszberg, General Director of Series Mania, expressed their hopes for the future of the festival and the television industry.
