The Edinburgh International Television Festival is a unique event created and planned by senior industry figures, for the international television and media industry. Founded in 1976, the Festival is a charitable organisation which aims to provide an environment where the industry can come together and share ideas, debate, get inspiration and knowledge, and build relationships.

The Festival runs two talent schemes, The Network and Fast Track, aimed at helping individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds gain knowledge and experience of the industry, supporting them in the early stages of their career and giving them access to valuable workshops and masterclasses.

Whether you have been in the business since the Festival was founded, or you are just starting out, The Edinburgh International Television Festival is for you. The Festival gives you a chance to talk telly with the best in the business, at an event full of opportunities for all. If you want to get into the industry, but don’t know where to start, The Network is for you. Already got your foot in the door? Fast Track is for you if you have 2–4 years' experience and are looking to take your career to the next level. Been around longer than that? Then the three days of Festival sessions, keynote speeches and social events should give you something new to talk about.

Immerse yourself in TV and join the debate in Edinburgh this and every August, at the industry’s most vibrant, welcoming, inclusive and thought provoking weekend.
