It will be the 27th edition of MipDoc and the 15th edition of MipFormats.

Mip London will take place in London’s West End from 23-27 February, based at the Savoy Hotel and the adjacent IET London conference centre. MipDoc and MipFormats will take place on Sunday and Monday, with a focus on showcasing new content, gaining market insights and networking to close deals.

The market will take place alongside the London Screenings, which is already taking place this month.

“The biggest international week for unscripted is now in London with MIP in February,” said Lucy Smith, Director of Mip London and Mipcom, which will continue in Cannes in the autumn. “We’ve had clear feedback from across the genre community about the importance of holding MipDoc and MipFormats in the first half of the year. Unscripted is a growing part of London’s events in February. By launching MipDoc and MipFormats ahead of the week, Mip London helps meet this demand, gives unscripted buyers and producers a head start on the latest trends and potential partnerships, and brings even more of the Mip experience to London.”

Mipcom will take place from October 21st to 24th.
