Background

MIPTV is also the forum for a conference that is programmed to respond to industry developments and directions. This year’s program, CREATORS IN DEMAND, looks at a world where all channels & platforms want to super-serve their fans and how the unprecedented demand for new shows is generating new opportunities for creator-driven stories.

New in 2018 will be Cannes Series which will host red carpet premieres and competition screenings for completed drama series as well as an international co-production forum for those in development.

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

For those who are well-prepared, have organised meetings in advance, and have researched the appropriate people to approach and have a solid and well tested slate, MIPTV can be extremely effective. For the documentary producer with a single documentary to sell, MIPTV can be a very frustrating and unproductive experience. The majority of potential buyers are actively working the market as sellers, the demand for one-off documentaries is limited, the lack of a product catalogue can make selling one title extremely difficult, and at a market as high-powered as this, the major buyers are looking to develop long-term relationships with regular suppliers.

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."
