Television

SIGNIS wants to support the production and distribution of quality TV programmes throughout the world. To achieve this goal, SIGNIS is organizing Seminars that bring together TV producers, programmers and channels searching for opportunities for co-production or collaboration.

SIGNIS follows the tradition of Unda (the former International Catholic Association for Radio and Television) in awarding the best of television in festivals: at the international television festival of Monte Carlo, at the Prix Italia and at the Plural + Festival.

The Monte Carlo Catholic television festival eventually lead to collaboration with WACC (the World Association for Christian Communication) in holding, every three years, a European Festival of Religious Television Programmes, hosted by different national public broadcasters.

SIGNIS also collaborates with the Catholic Radio and Television Network (CRTN) .

Awards

SIGNIS follows the tradition of Unda (the former International Catholic Association for Radio and Television) in awarding the best of television in festivals. The international television festival of Monte Carlo is the most prestigious of them all. It is sometimes forgotten that this TV Festival began under the inspiration of Unda, which held its first International Catholic Television Festival in Monaco in 1958. The Monte Carlo Festival began in 1961 and Unda awarded the Unda Dove (now the SIGNIS Dove) from 1962. The Monte Carlo Catholic television festival eventually lead to collaboration with WACC (the World Association for Christian Communication) in holding, every three years, a European Festival of Religious Television Programmes, hosted by different national public broadcasters. SIGNIS also gives awards at the Prix Italia. This international television, radio and web festival is an important showcase for public and private broadcasting organized by RAI, the Italian public broadcaster. SIGNIS also gives a prize at the Plural + Festival, organized by IOM and UNAOC. More info on this festival here.
