Two weeks after the Venice Film Festival, international jurors met in Venice for the annual Venice TV Award, which honours the year’s television masterpieces across 16 separate categories.

An additional six productions were awarded nominees in the Performing Arts category:

“The core of the future of TV lies in the development and production of high-quality stories and original content. Being able to see and judge high-quality, engaging content at The Venice TV Award is what makes this award so important and so relevant,” as Jury Member Karim Bartoletti, Executive Board Member, Italian Association of Production Companies, succinctly put it.
