Two weeks after the Venice Film Festival, international jurors met in Venice for an annual event. The Awards, which are supported by the International Music + Media Centre [IMZ], the European Group of Television Advertising [EGTA], and the Association of Commercial TV [ACT], honours the year's best television.
Presided over by a jury of leading TV experts, the Venice TV Award saw trophies handed out to international TV shows across 16 categories; TV Series, TV Movie, Performing Arts, Documentary, Light Entertainment, News, Program Promotion, Branded Entertainment, Sports, Children/Youth, Comedy, Reality TV, Technical Quality, Cross-Platform, Telenovela and New Talent.
Sky Atlantic’s Landscapers, a four-part series dramatising the real-life story of murderous married couple Susan and Christopher Edwards, and staring Olivia Coleman and David Thewlis, was handed the award for Best TV Series.
Sky triumphed elsewhere as Life & Rhymes, a diverse and original show which draws the viewer into an invisible world of spoken word, won in Light Entertainment, while Romeo & Juliet, the National Theatre’s first attempt at a film production, won in the Performing Art category.
A fourth win came in the Children/Youth category and went to COP26: In Your Hands, a documentary giving a voice to a diverse group of young people, allowing them to air their concerns over climate change.
Other winners on the night included UK broadcaster Channel 4, which was awarded Best TV Film for Help.
ITV News won in the News category for its coverage last year of the storming of the US Capitol building, while the winner in the Comedy category was HBO Max for Minx, a show about the first erotic magazine for women.
The Documentary category was won by French broadcaster Canal+ for Invincible, its portrait of the footballing pioneer Arsène Wenger, who changed the landscape of the English Premier League. Globo Network from Brazil won in Program Promotion.
There were Winners and Nominees from countries including the UK, Germany, USA, Brazil, India, France, Japan, Sweden, Italy, Canada and South Africa, among many others.
“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,” stated Karim Bartoletti, executive board member of the Italian Association of Production Companies and partner/executive producer at Italian production company, Indiana.
