55° Monte Carlo TV Film Festival
With its glitzy backdrop, red carpets and press junkets, the seaside 55° Monte Carlo TV Film Festival, created by the principality of Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, is benefiting from the rising popularity of TV drama, luring more and more film talent and filmmakers, notably from Europe, where local TV industries are flourishing.
Juries for all four Golden Nymphs also help raise the festival’s profile. “We’ve made a point of attracting high-profile and popular jury members and guests such as Donald Sutherland, Jerry Bruckheimer (recipient of a career tribute), or Rosanna Arquette,” said Puons.
This year’s jury presidents include
- Ron Perlman (TV miniseries)
- Patrick Duffy (TV series)
- Eric Close (TV films)
- Bianca Jagger (news programs)
