After years spent establishing a significant beachhead in Paris and becoming an increasingly important stop on the TV series circuit, Series Mania is relocating to Lille, in northern France, starting with next year’s festival.
The decision was announced Thursday at the National Film Board (CNC) in Paris by Xavier Bertrand, the prefect of the Hauts-de-France region, and follows weeks of speculation over what would happen to Series Mania after the French government decided to throw its weight behind starting up a new – and possibly competing – TV drama festival in Lille.
The surprise guest of the news conference was Laurence Herszberg (pictured), the founder of Series Mania, who announced that she would step down as general director of the Forum des Images in Paris to head Series Mania in Lille. Herszberg is bringing with her Frederic Lavigne, the artistic director of Series Mania, and Francesco Capurro, head of the festival’s co-production forum, who will spearhead Lille’s industry sidebar.
Herszberg said she expected talent, showrunners and directors to turn up in Lille, and revealed that she had already approached Jill Soloway (“I Love Dick”) to be the honorary president of the festival’s first edition in Lille. Past guests who have appeared at Series Mania include David Chase (“The Sopranos”), Damon Lindelof (“The Leftovers”) and Matthew Weiner (“Mad Men”).
With a budget of 5 million euros ($5.7 million), the Lille event will be backed by the CNC, which will provide 1 million euros; the Hauts-de-France region, where Lille is located; and the city of Lille. By comparison, Series Mania in Paris had a budget in the 3 million euros range, including 800,000 euros from the CNC.
