In its long-awaited return to the face-to-face format, the event closes with notable numbers of attendees. Here, all the winners of Series Mania 2021.

Series Mania 2021 unveiled its awards at the closing ceremony held at the Nouveau Siècle in Lille, on Thursday, September 2.

In addition, it revealed preliminary numbers of attendees to this first physical edition of the event after the year of hiatus due to the pandemic.

“Our numbers speak for themselves: we had more than 54,000 participants as part of the Series Mania Festival, and for the Series Mania Forum, the in-person event had a total of 2,100 participants, with more than 400 online registrations, which combined for a 2,500 participants from 66 different countries and 50,000 visits to the platform, “he explained.

Regarding the winners of Series Mania 2021, Herszberg celebrated that two of them, Blackport and The Last Socialist Artefact, were projects originally presented at the Co-Pro Pitching Sessions of the Series Mania Forum, “which once again reinforces the fact that Series Mania is the place ‘where series begin’ ”.

In the list of winners, the Colombian series stands out Colorful life, created by David David and produced by Garabato Cine, which won the Special Jury Prize in the International Panorama category. The series was broadcast this year in Colombia by Canal Telecaribe.
