We are also a charity

We are a charitable organisation* with a mission to identify and nurture the next generation of talent, whatever their background.

We run two Talent Schemes which celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. The Network (formerly known as TVYP) gives brand new entrants a vital first step into the TV and digital industries while Ones to Watch (formerly known as Fast Track) supports those at the early stages of their career.

Both benefit from fully-funded places at the festival which includes tailored workshops, masterclasses and networking, plus we offer year-round mentoring, training and events.

* the charitable parent company is The Edinburgh Television Festival Council, charity registration number SC030821. The TV Festival is operated by the parent’s wholly owned subsidiary, Edinburgh International Television Festival Limited.
