Series Mania is the world's most prestigious international TV festival and this year it's coming exclusively to ACMI.

About Series Mania
Held annually at the Forum des Images in Paris since 2009, Series Mania is the fastest growing festival of its kind, and a key event on the global TV industry calendar. The festival invites the finest new drama and narrative comedy series from around the globe to have their local (and often international) premiere in the free screening program alongside Q&As with members of the key creative teams.
Series Mania is an important launch pad for international TV, and hosts an increasingly influential co-production forum for industry. At the 2016 Series Mania awards, Australia’s own The Kettering Incident (Foxtel) picked up the Special Jury Prize, and the festival has previously showcased hit Australian series Cleverman (ABC), The Family Law (SBS), Gallipoli (Nine) and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (ABC).
