Séries Mania festival focuses on the small screen
While binge-watching whole seasons of television has become a true phenomenon, a French festival grasped the appeal of indulgent series viewing almost ten years ago. Created in 2010 by Laurence Herszberg, Séries Mania showcases French and international series: a veritable “Festival de Cannes” but for TV programming. Although organized in Lille, the festival travelled to Paris one night to host an exceptional dinner, gathering French actors, scriptwriters and producers. At large tables within the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild sat Isabelle Adjani, Géraldine Nakache, Benoît Magimel, Alysson Paradis and Antoine De Caunes. The festival itself will take place this year from March 22 to 30.
