A privileged witness of the convergence between cinema and series, now a main event for all industry professionals, the international festival SERIES MANIA Lille Hauts-de-France wishes to promote the dialogue between the Europe and the United States with the support of the European Commission and the CNC. This is the main objective of Lille Transatlantic Dialogues which will take place on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. This day of reflection orchestrated by SERIES MANIA brings together those who preside over the destinies of the global drama production: writers, producers, broadcasters, platforms and European regulators (Commission European Parliament, Ministers of Culture ...).

Every year, Lille Transatlantic Dialogues features 3 categories of participants:

  • US studios and platforms
  • European creators, producers, and broadcasters
  • Representatives from the European Institutions, miniters from different EU countries and members of parliaments

Lille Transatlantic Dialogues is a joint initiative between:

  • the SERIES MANIA festival as an organizer;
  • the CNC, representing the Ministry of Culture and the French Government;
  • the European Commission (Creative Europe - MEDIA), partner of the event.

The sessions proposed in the framework of the Lille Transatlantic Dialogues are open to all SERIES MANIA FORUM registered participants, within the limit of capacity of the auditoriums.
