Monte-Carlo Television Festival: Complete 2023 Guide
This is a complete insider’s guide to Monaco’s 2023 Monte-Carlo Television Festival, written by a Monaco resident, including the location, ticketing, insider information, and showtimes.
HSH Prince Ranier III of Monaco founded the Monte-Carlo Television Festival in 1961, and it is now under the Honorary Presidency of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
HSH Prince Rainier III sees the TV as “a new art form, in the service of peace and understanding between people”. It deems it as an extraordinary means to unite cultures and enhance knowledge.
Celebrities, producers, directors, writers and heads of studios, networks and digital platforms gather in June every year to attend series launches, premiere screenings, conferences, press activities, public events, VIP meetings and signing sessions.
Official Ceremonies, special screenings, and premieres are all open to the public. For the entire week of the Festival, signing sessions will be organized with your favorite actors.
You can also attend “Behind the Scenes” panel discussions with the celebrities from your favorite TV series. Panelists will share unique insights with the audience, who will have the opportunity to ask select questions about the making of a series, production techniques and special effects, plus the latest buzz from behind the scenes. Each day of the festival, a DJ will offer a two-hour set, from 5pm to 7pm for fans.
The festival includes:
- Official opening ceremonies
- Special screenings
- Premieres at the Grimaldi Forum
