MIPCOM is underway in Cannes as Irish companies hope to do business
MIPCOM, the world’s largest entertainment content market, has got underway this morning (October 8) with more than 40 Irish companies in Cannes to attend the four-day event.

Hoping to network and make deals with international buyers and sellers, the Irish contingent is among some 13,000 participants that have jetted into France from all across the globe.

The majority of Irish companies have flown out under the Ireland on Screen banner, an initiative by the Irish Film Board and Enterprise Ireland which aims to promote the Irish industry at the market and provides a range of business facilities for Irish delegates.

The Ireland on Screen stand will bring together a host of Irish companies from content producers to post production companies to distributors and more. The stand is located at #02.30 in the Palais.

MIPCOM got underway this morning with a Focus on Canada breakfast, which featured a host of Canadian talent. Among the upcoming key events at the market include a keynote address from renowned Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein later this week.

In terms of the number of companies attending MIPCOM, the US, the UK, France and Canada have the largest number of attendees. The market’s organisers are also this year expecting a sizeable contingent of buyers from the Far East with a rise in the number of attendees from China and South and North Korea.

High-end period drama featuring high-profile casts and reality shows are expected to be most in demand with Irish co-production ‘Ripper Street’ among the shows expected to sell well. The BBC show’s stars Matthew Macfadyen and Jerome Flynn are both in Cannes to promote the show.
