CONNECTED

PITCH | COLLABORATE | CO-PRODUCE

The ConnectED Speed Meeting strand offers 2021 pass holders the opportunity to meet one-on-one with commissioners, producers, distributors and TV specialists. Expanding outside the Festival week in August, more delegates are given the chance at the pitch of a lifetime.

The ConnectED team manage the sessions via videocall on Zoom and all 2021 delegates are eligible to apply for one of the 10 minute slots. Speed meeting hosts from broadcasters, producers and distributors across the UK and internationally will be announced via weekly newsletters, and their profiles will be available to view on our website and meetings requested online as in previous years.

ConnectED is now closed for applications.

GET THE INSIDE TRACK

The Edinburgh TV Festival has launched a new series of regular sessions with commissioners and decision-makers. Get the inside track on how to pitch to major broadcasters and understand their requirements first hand.

Delegates who secure a space can submit a question in advance, and they can also weigh in on the day. The sessions are sharply focussed on the commissioning processes and content needs of a channel or platform. Sessions are restricted to a limited number of attendees to ensure each is hands-on and offers all participants a chance to contribute. All 2021 pass holders are eligible to apply to participate and sessions will be available on demand for delegates only.
