Next year’s Series Mania is scheduled to take place from March 22 to 30, 2019, with the European Forum of Projects and Talents set for March 25 to 27.
This year, Series Mania’s first edition in Lille, the festival brought together 56,695 spectators as well as more than 2,000 professionals from 39 countries that took part in the European Forum of Projects and Talents, with a special focus on writing and development of European premium content.
The decision to change the dates for 2019—as the event had been held in late-April—were taken jointly with the Lille City Hall and the Hauts-de-France Region.
“In April 2019, Lille3000, a multi-cultural programming organization, will produce its major tri-annual event,” commented Laurence Herszberg, founder of Series Mania. “Lille3000 will occupy most of the city’s theaters, venues, as well as most of the principal hotels. Series Mania, working in cooperation with the leading cultural players of the city and the region, has therefore decided to advance its dates to harmonize with this very important event in Lille’s cultural season.”
