France TV breaks with the Montreux Festival


The #Montreux laughter festival in #Switzerland is one of the biggest events in #French-speaking humor. #Last #December, it was canceled due to health restrictions due to the coronavirus. #So the whole team looked for a solution to postpone the festival to spring 2021. #It was without counting on #France Télévisions which decided “to abandon in open country” the festival, according to the words of the director of #Montreux, #Yann #Renoard, #Thursday, on #Europe 1.

The festival organizer had hoped to postpone the event to the end of #May, but that is therefore falling apart. #It had the support of #Swiss public television and the #Comédie channel, but #France Télévisions refused to postpone its funding for that date. “#That they want to put an end to a commercial relationship which dates back ten years, it hurts, but somewhere it can be understood on condition that we put the forms into it, launches #Yann #Renoard, annoyed, #This which is more complicated is to take advantage of a cancellation that is not our fault, and to use this reason to leave the deal without honoring the last year, obviously without paying us anything and leaving us a little to our own fate “.

“#We had one knee on the ground, they pushed us a little bit”

#However, the director of the #Montreux festival had put a lot of hope on his historic partner. “#When we contacted them, we were sure that, like the others, they were going to respond. #We had one knee on the ground, they pushed us a little bit I think,” he breathes.

#According to him, #France Télévisions motivated its decision by the probable shutdown of #France 4, which was broadcasting this show and the need to free up leeway to launch new programs. The festival is therefore now looking for another broadcaster.
