From naked mole rats to American and Russian presidents, this year’s assortment of MIPTV Picks has something for every discerning factual buyer. Once again, our call for entries brought in scores of projects from across the non-fiction spectrum, with a noticeable uptick in family-friendly formats and, on the other side of the coin, examinations of the environmental crisis created by our use of plastics, most likely spurred on by the troubling revelations in Blue Planet II. And for whatever reason, volcanoes seem to be hot this year, pardon the pun.
Congrats to our Best in Show (The Bit Player), and for the rest of our picks, selected by the Realscreen editorial staff, read on.
