Monte-Carlo TV Festival opens

19 June 2017

The 57th Monte-Carlo TV Festival started on Friday. This year's Festival hosts world premieres of the shows "Absentia" (Sony), and "The Last Tycoon"(Amazon) in a bid to face increased competitiveness from Cannes. In 1961 the The Monte Carlo TV Festival was created by Monaco's Prince Rainer III husband of actress Grace Kelly. The Festival runs until Tuesday.
