Series Mania sets new dates for 2021

Series Mania had been due to return next March

French drama festival Series Mania has shifted the dates for its planned 2021 edition back as it attempts to return with a physical event.

The Series Mania Festival will be held in Lille from May 28 to June 5, with the Series Mania Forum set for June 1 to 3.

The event was one of the high-profile cancellations in the annual television conference circuit this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Initially it had been intended to return between March 19 and 27, 2021 but has now confirmed later dates, as optimism grows thanks to news of Covid-19 vaccines revealed by major drug companies in the past fortnight.

Rodolphe Belmer, president of Series Mania, said: “We are extremely grateful to the Hauts-de-France region and the city of Lille who have worked closely with us in helping to secure these new dates for 2021. As you can imagine, this was not an easy task.

“With the ongoing uncertainly surrounding Covid-19, we believe these dates in the warmer months of May and June are the perfect time frame for Series Mania 2021. For our 2022 edition, we will return to our dates in March for which Series Mania has become known.”

Laurence Herszberg, founder and general director of Series Mania, added: “With this opportunity to move our annual in-person rendez-vous to June for 2021, Series Mania will be in the coveted position slated between two other major international events, Cannes Film Festival and Annecy Festival.”

Registration will begin online on January 18.
