MIPTV is a global market for entertainment content across all platforms, held every April at the Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France. MIPTV is also the forum for a conference that is programmed to respond to industry developments and directions.

Background

Traditionally, MIPTV is most appropriate for experienced producers seeking pre-sale and development deals. MIPTV still attracts important European and American broadcasters, however MIPCOM in October currently attracts far more participants. You can compare the companies that attend each market at My Mip to try and get a sense which is better for you.

In 2020 MipTV introduced changes to try and set itself apart from MIPCOM, with a shift to focus more on pitching, earlier stage projects, professional development opportunities and masterclasses via new programmes such as In DevelopmentMatchmaking SessionsMip Clinic. Also specific to MIPTV, Cannes Series which was launched in 2018, hosts red carpet premieres and competition screenings for completed drama series.

For more info and the conference program visit the MIPTV website.

The weekend prior to MIPTV, MIPDOC and MIP FORMATS occur.

Attendee tips

  • "It’s good practice to follow up every meeting with an email on return. Don’t expect to walk away with deals – follow up."
  • "By targeting six to eight quality meetings I was able to spend time considering, preparing and following up. It’s a much better market strategy than exhausting oneself on too many unprofitable meetings and then arriving home exhausted and wondering whether it had all happened."
  • "Get there a day early. The first three days of the market are the most important."
  • "Know who you’re pitching to. Keep your dignity."
  • "Don’t have long videos to show people – 3 minutes max."
