Durant le Rendez-Vous 2016, bon nombre de participants ont manifesté à l’équipe de TV France leur enthousiasme. Nous recevons de la part des uns et des autres quelques mots de remerciements, et parce que c’est également à l’équipe de TV France de remercier les participants, nous vous en offrons ici un florilège.


Stamos Protopsaltis, General Manager, Hellas Television International (Greece)

It was a great pleasure for me to attend the Rendez Vous  this year as always.

Just like every year I had the chance to talk with all the people from the companies I represent and with several buyers as well from various countries and markets.

The real development this time was Screenopsis. I did not use it so much in Biarritz (only for half an hour) but I had realized its usefulness and used it extensively prior to the Rendez Vous and I keep using it all the time.

TVFI already had a site but Screenopsis is as user friendly as one could imagine.

It is very well made  and especially for people that are not so computer savvy it is very convenient and does help a lot to avoid consuming time tracing programs or relating to ideas. One looks under program or company and then there is a real highway of info relevant to what we are looking for very quickly.

In general it makes the buyer’s life much easier and this is very good for us sales people!

I understand that it requires a lot of work from people from the companies/members of TVFI to include their titles with the documentation necessary in Screenopsis but the benefits are enormous. Once a program is included it will not get out and we will all know how to find it easily. Each company for sure enjoys more and more the benefits of hi – tech with this platform as clients, trust me on this, become more demanding every day and want everything on their plate!!!

The quality of the content, timing and atmosphere of the market and the opportunity to easily compare and contrast across genres and suppliers makes Le Rendez-Vous one of the stand-out events in the television calendar

Arman Oner, Director, Sales & Acquisitions, Digital Media Rights (USA)

As a first-time attendee of Le Rendez-Vous, Biarritz, I must say my expectations were more than surpassed, and that the experience could not have been more pleasant. Everything about the market was managed seamlessly, and I was able to have meaningful meetings with almost every exhibitor. As a result, I expect LRV to be one our most fruitful markets this year.

Meetings and deals aside, my hotel, the market venue, themed and shared meals, and gorgeous backdrop made the experience even better. We are grateful to TV France International for the invitation, and I would recommend LRV to any buyer interested in acquiring French content.

Belles soirées… une bien belle cuvée 2016.
