RX France announced a strong raft of bookings for its international content market for Latin American and US Hispanic television, MIP Cancun, which will be celebrated on November, 13-16, 2022. Eight weeks ahead of opening day, over 600 delegates from over 40 countries are set to attend (evenly split between buyers, producers and distributors), which, with further confirmations coming in daily, marks the return to pre-pandemic levels of attendance to the market.
Now in its ninth edition, and renowned for its signature one-to-one matchmaking component, MIP Cancun returns to the Moon Palace Resort that last year welcomed more than 450 delegates in person against a backdrop of travel restrictions still in force in many countries. Activities at MIP Cancun will run from Sunday to Wednesday for the first time, with a pre-opening day concentrating on insights and sessions before established Distribution Market, Co-Production Forum and Conference Programme elements running from Monday through to Wednesday.
Companies confirmed to date for the Distribution Market include: A+E Networks, All3Media International, Atresmedia TV, TV Azteca, Beta Film, Kanal D, Caracol, Eccho Rights, Filmrise, Fremantle, Gaumont, Jetpack Distribution, IMPS, ITV Studios, NBCUniversal, RTVE, StudioCanal, Somos Distribution, TelevisaUnivision, The Mediapro Studio, VIP 2000 TV, and ZDF Studios.
At the same time, buyers confirmed are: Prime Video, AMC Networks International Latin America, Arte1, Buendia Estudios, Directv Latin America, Globo, HBO Max, Mediapro, Movistar, Paramount, Starz, Totalplay, and Warner Bros. Discovery.
Meanwhile, companies confirmed to date to participate in the Co-Production Forum include: 64A Films, Arcana, Asacha Media Group, Balassa Films, Buendia Estudios, CMO Producciones, DeAPlaneta Fiction, Dynamo Producciones, Laberinto Producciones, Lavenica Films, Ledafilms, Movie Box Group, Quantico Films, Mega Global Entertainment, Punta Fina, Sony Pictures Entertainment, TeleColombia, TeleMundo, and The Mediapro Studio. These will also be joined by the return of National Pavilions, including ProColombia and Argentina Audiovisual, to the market.
“The positive response to this year’s market has been hugely encouraging and the confirmations keep coming in daily. It is clear the community is keen to convene again in person, and that the appetite for Latin American and US Hispanic content, global deal-making and partnerships is as strong as ever,” commented Maria Perez-Bellière, Director of MIP Cancun.
