Series Mania Issues Call for Projects


Series Mania has issued a call for series and co-pro projects to be presented at its 2021 edition, which is gearing up to include a live event in Lille as well as an expanded digital component.

The Series Mania Festival is set to take place March 19 to 27, with the Series Mania Forum scheduled for March 23 to 25. At the festival, 60 series will be selected for the program. The forum, meanwhile, will present 16 projects during Co-Pro Pitching Sessions, vying for a €50,000 prize. The deadline for submissions for both the festival and the forum is January 6.

“From the start of Series Mania, we have held to our mission of ‘Where series begin,’” said Laurence Herszberg, founder and general director of Series Mania. “We have found the best emerging talent in Europe, and around the world, and have helped to create series that are making headlines today. And now, with the emergence of new working methods resulting from COVID-19, we have come to increasing value festivals as essential face-to-face networking events, while at the same time realizing the importance of online tools such as our Series Mania Digital. Taken together, our live festival and online platform are certain to make Series Mania 2021 the best event yet.”
