The best of TV made in Switzerland at GIFF

Geneva International Film Festival // GIFF will reveal three exclusive 100% Swiss series co-produced by RTS and SRF during its 25th Festival which will take place from November 1 to 10.

First of all, Helvetica, a breathtaking Swiss political thriller that has just been rewarded with a Best Foreign French-speaking Fiction Award at Festival de la Fiction in La Rochelle (France).

Two hugely successful series also return: Swiss-German production Wilder, a chilling investigation in the heart of the mountains, and Swiss-French series Banking District (Quartier des banques), a dark thriller in Geneva’s banking sector – whose first season was screened at GIFF in 2017. To be discovered during a special “Season 2” evening.
