To Market, to Market

What is MIPCOM and Why Should You Attend?


MIPCOM is the largest TV market in the world, held in Cannes France in the same building (Palais des Festivals) as the Cannes Film Festival. The Palais des Festivals building has over 24,100 square meters or 259,410 square feet of space spread over multiple levels.  

Executives from 2,088 companies, 4,500 potential buyers and over 12,000 people attended the last MIPCOM.

NBC Universal Studios, the Walt Disney Company, The Weinstein Company,  Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM), ABC, CBS Studio International, DreamWorks Animation, HBO, Viacom, A&E, Discovery and Netflix were just a few of the companies that attended MIPCOM.

The companies attending MIPCOM buy product, fund development deals, distribute TV series, shows and documentaries.

You can meet with executives from these companies – AND PERSONALLY PITCH YOUR PROJECT – something that is nearly impossible for emerging filmmakers to do if they approach these companies and executives at their studios or offices.

And, when you attend MIPCOM you receive a 500 page guide with the names, contact numbers, e-mail addresses of executives who attend the event.
