We’re committed to helping people from all backgrounds gain access to the TV Industry and the cost of your ticket goes towards supporting our two Talent Schemes, The Network and Ones to Watch.

We provide fully-funded places at Edinburgh, bespoke sessions, training and workshops, as well as year-round events and mentoring. We have supported more than 4000 individuals in various stages of their career, aiming to ensure that the people working in television are as diverse as the audience watching it.

In late 2019 The Edinburgh TV Festival is further expanding its remit as the foremost charity dedicated to supporting the television industry with the launch of a new division – The TV Foundation – ushered in by a living wage campaign. Follow @thetvfoundation on Twitter for all the latest updates.
