Laurence Herszberg, Series Mania’s founder and general director, has announced the line-up of guests and speakers at the 6th edition of the Lille Dialogues, set for March 21. The one-day summit, which this year will be devoted to artificial intelligence, brings together international TV industry leaders to discuss the challenges facing the industry and to promote international cooperation. The event is organized in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture, the CNC, and the European Commission.

“The rapid development of artificial intelligence and generative technology is having a major impact on the design and production of audiovisual works. This powerful tool is a unique opportunity for creators and professionals, but it is also risky. Panels for this year’s event will cover the impact of AI on the content industry, how AI reshapes the creative industries, and how best to embrace the AI revolution,” commented Herszberg. “The Lille Dialogues are, and continue to be, a vital platform to curate insightful discussions, collaborative solutions, and thought-provoking exchange between key leaders within the audiovisual industry. We look forward to welcoming everyone to this year’s Lille Dialogues.”
