Monte Carlo’s last hurrah

The Monte Carlo Television Market and Festival calls it quits, but a summer festival will carry on the name.
June 7, 2001

Despite early hopes that the re-focus on formats at this year’s Monte Carlo Television Market and Festival would keep the event alive, secretary general David Tomatis recently announced February’s market was the last. The 41-year-old event will be replaced with an entirely new festival that deals with the craft of scriptwriting, directing and production, set to take place July 1 to 6, 2002. Stubbornly labeled the 42nd Monte Carlo Television Festival, the new event will feature an international awards program, panels, workshops and screenings.
