The Festival

The festival

After a first edition that could not be held in person, Marseille Series Stories is eager to meet its audience. Marseillais, series and literature lovers, curious minds, audiovisual and publishing professionals: the festival will offer all audiences four days of screenings and meetings focused on literary adaptation in series!

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 will offer an entertaining program for all audiences, free and upon reservation.


A hybrid edition

For its second edition, Marseille Series Stories goes hybrid and will display its selection of series at Cinéma La Joliette and also online, on the festival website.

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


The program:

Premieres, meetings, masterclasses, creative workshops for children, professional meetings and round tables: the complete programmation of the festival will be revealed in October.
