The annual MIA—International Audiovisual Market, directed by Lucia Milazzotto, has launched its seventh edition.
This year’s edition features 1,700 participants from over 50 countries, with more than 90 percent physically taking part in the event. MIA’s lineup includes more than 140 events, 80 of which are market previews and world premieres.
Featured guests of the seventh edition, which will host 350 original titles in development and in production, include Stefano Accorsi, Phaim Bhuiyan, Marco Bellocchio, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Alessandro Borghi, Alessandro Gassmann, Luigi Lo Cascio, Neri Marcorè, Valerio Mastandrea, Ferzan Ozpetek, Alessandro Rak, Giorgio Tirabassi and Zerocalcare.
MIA has renewed its content, networking and market tools by strengthening its three divisions: scripted, curated by Gaia Tridente, including film and drama; unscripted, curated by Marco Spagnoli, including doc and factual; and strategic development, which comprises the market screenings, content showcases and activities related to the sale of the complete product, entrusted to Francesca Palleschi.
MIA is a joint venture between ANICA—Associazione Nazionale Industrie Cinematografiche Audiovisive Multimediali, presided by Francesco Rutelli, and APA—Associazione Produttori Audiovisivi, chaired by Giancarlo Leone.
The seventh edition of MIA takes place in Rome at the Palazzo Barberini, Cinema Moderno and Cinema Quattro Fontane from October 13 to 17.
