MIP Cancun wrapped a successful and vibrant tenth anniversary edition, confirming 800 distributors, buyers, commissioners, producers and industry professionals from 43 countries in attendance for the industry’s first international content and co-production market for Latin America and US Hispanic television.
Famed for its signature one-to-one matchmaking format, the MIP Cancun Distribution and Co-Production strands connected distributors with buyers, and producers with commissioners, from across the region during three days of pre-scheduled meetings, summits, screenings and networking events. According to its organizers, more than 8,100 one-to-one meetings were facilitated over three days.
Some highlights of the market were the inaugural pre-opening Fast&Global: Americas Summit, the WAWA (Worldwide Audiovisual Women’s Association) Celebration Event “Stronger Together,” and four high profile market screenings: “Playa Soledad” (Sony Pictures Television), “Land of Desire” (Globo), “Leylifer” (Inter Medya), and “Safir” (ATV).
The edition also included a significant Argentinian presence as part of the export support program promoted by the Argentine Investment and Trade Promotion Agency in collaboration with the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Comprising more than 30 companies, the delegation attended 600 business meetings with decision-makers from across the region, showcasing a broad catalogue of finished content and co-production proposals.
“We have grown MIP Cancun ten-fold in ten years. The enthusiasm for MIP Cancun is exceptional, and this unique MIP market has established itself each November as the flagship event in Latin America to license content and negotiate development deals. We will be back in Mexico in 2024 because the industry overwhelmingly supports this vital market,” said Maria Perez-Belliere, Director of MIP Cancun.
MIP Cancun will return to the Moon Palace Cancun hotel and resort for its 11th edition from November 19-22, 2024, the organizers confirmed.
