The organization of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival announced in the last hours the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the event due to the coronavirus crisis.

After Series Mania, Miptv and LA Screenings, among others, a new event in the TV industry was canceled in the last few hours amidst the coronavirus crisis: the Monte-Carlo Television Festival.

The event’s organization announced in the last hours that, due to the world crisis unleashed by Covid-19, the 2020 edition of the festival is definitely canceled.

The event was scheduled to take place between June 19 and 23 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

The next edition will be between June 18 and 22, 2021, in the same location.

“We have faced an unprecedented situation that, unfortunately, is depriving us all of our freedom for an indefinite time,” said Laurent Puons, CEO of the Festival.

“I am forced to cancel the 2020 edition of our festival in June. We all must take responsibility to protect the most precious thing we have: our health and that of our loved ones.”

Created in 1961 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the festival was due to celebrate its 60th edition this year.
