To Cannes with Factual-Entertainment and Adventure

The ACTF will attend MIPTV and MIPDoc in Cannes, France, this month with a unique documentary series MY:24 and 13 new episodes of hit series Bushwhacked!

 It will be the first time that the ACTF has participated in MIPDoc and it is here where MY:24 will be launched.

“Kids and young adults tell their own real stories in their own voices about a significant event in their childhood and how it shaped them. The result is a selection of very unique and personal stories told with universal themes,” said Roberta Di Vito, International Sales Manager at the ACTF.

Not only does MY:24 provide a platform for these voices, but the stories also carry a great message of resilience and hope. 

Factual entertainment is a linking theme at this years MIPTV with the ACTF also highlighting the 52-part wildlife series WAC (World Animal Championships) as well as launching Bushwhacked! Series 2.

The action-packed adventure series Bushwhacked! weaves together adventure, travel, food, wildlife, history and culture.

The new series of Bushwhacked! has already been acquired by Super RTL Germany and Discovery Networks Asia Pacific.
