Created in Paris in 2010 by Laurence Herszberg, the Series Mania International Festival shows the world’s best series on the big screen, giving an unique opportunity to its audience – over 70,000 spectators in 2019 and over 2,500 French and foreign professionals, throughout the course of a 9-day event. Meet the most famous showrunners, screenwriters, directors and talents of yesterday, today and tomorrow’s serial universe.

SERIES MANIA, the 100% series festival

The event is unique, and entirely dedicated to series, to those who make them and to those who watch them. Held in the heart of Europe, this festive – and free! – event with a program varied and of high quality is unanimously acclaimed by both the public and the industry from all over the world.

SERIES MANIA FORUM, the professional section of the SERIES MANIA Festival, has become since its creation in 2013 the unmissable rendez-vous for any and all international actors of serial creation, the place-to-be where decision-makers and audiovisual talents meet to discuss works in progress or in production and imagine the next generation of upcoming series.
Since 2018, LILLE TRANSATLANTIC DIALOGUES is also the new forum for high-level meetings and exchanges dedicated to bringing together the main political, institutional, creative and economic players in TV and cultural sectors in Europe and in the United States of America.
