The Festival

The festival

Promoting the art of adaptation, (re)giving people an appetite for books by highlighting the stories and authors behind our favorite series: these are the ambitions of Marseille Series Stories, the first festival of series based on literary works, initiated by the Bouches-du-Rhône department.

Marseille Series Stories offers an entertaining program for all audiences, free and upon reservation.


The program:

Premieres, meetings, masterclasses, creative workshops for children, professional meetings and round tables: the programmation of the festival is online.

What is the Publishers’ Market ?

A “B to B” meeting between audiovisual producers and literary publishers.

Accredited participants to the Publishers’ Market will be able to book their appointments in advance through a dedicated reservation interface.

Appointments are thus guaranteed and the schedule is perfectly managed.

A brochure will be sent in advance to the accredited participants with a selection of pitches chosen by Marseille Series Stories, giving an overview of the works available and presented during the Market.


A hybrid edition

The digital screenings will take place at the same time as the cinema screenings, at fixed time. Just as the screenings at Cinéma Pathé La Joliette, they will be accessible for free, upon reservation.
