Important announcement


The 60th anniversary of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Bad news for all the festival fans, the press, and all the team who have been working tirelessly on this year's Monte-Carlo Television Festival: the 60th edition is officially postponed until June 2021. The global health crisis and the COVID-19 epidemic are too important to take any chances. The decision has been taken following the Monegasque authorities' recommendations.

Laurent Puons, CEO of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, comments, "We have been confronted with an unprecedented situation which is unfortunately currently depriving us all of our freedom for an indefinite period of time. It is with great regret that I am obliged to cancel the 2020 edition of our Television Festival in June. We must all take up our responsibilities to protect what is most precious: our health, that of our loved ones and of our festival-goers. The safety of the talent and public attending the event is paramount. I would like to thank all the sponsors, studios, networks, streaming platforms, festival-goers and journalists who had renewed their commitment to this year's Festival. I'll be delighted to welcome them in Monaco next June."

He adds, "I also would like to applaud my team who have worked tirelessly to get the event to its current stage of organisation. I look forward to next year, when we can celebrate with peace of mind together this 60th Anniversary, which, as in previous years, will again reach new heights."

This year's 60th edition of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival is unfortunately cancelled, but the good news is that it is rescheduled in 2021 from the 18th to 22nd June at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.
