Two weeks after the Venice Film Festival, international jurors met in Venice for the annual Venice TV Award to celebrate this year´s masterpieces. The event is supported by IMZ (International Music + Media Centre), egta (European Group of Television Advertising) and ACT (Association of Commercial TV).

I am pleased that the Venice TV Award recognizes this“, said Sonia Rovai, Head of Scripted Production, Sky Italia.
