Will the Festival be taking place in Edinburgh in 2021?

No. Due to ongoing restrictions for indoor events in Scotland, the passes currently for sale, and sessions already announced, are for a digital experience only. We are disappointed not to be with our partners, the EICC, in Edinburgh this year, but are looking forward to being in the city again in 2022. However, we are in live conversations with speakers and partners about elements of the programme that could be safely delivered with an audience in August and will share details of those sessions and how to attend them as they are confirmed. Priority booking access to any audience events will be offered to those already holding digital passes.

Will all Edinburgh TV Digital Festival 2021 sessions be available to view for free on YouTube after the Festival?

All sessions will be available for catch-up for registered delegates only. There will be a selection of sessions available on YouTube sometime after the Festival. These will be available once the exclusive window for delegates has passed.

The only way to guarantee access to all sessions in 2021 is to buy a pass, and for the best experience, watch them live in August.


What if I transferred my 2020 pass and can’t attend in 2021?

If your circumstances change, you will be able to transfer your pass for 2021 to a colleague for £30 + VAT – this would ordinarily cost £75 + VAT.

How do I attend ConnectED+ sessions?

Registered delegates will be invited by email to apply to join the live audience for these sessions. Spaces are limited and book up quickly so be sure to apply as soon as possible. If you are unable to join the live session, they will be made available on demand.

How will donations be used to support the TV Foundation?

Your donation would directly support the TV Foundation activity throughout the year, helping us to run our three Talent Schemes this year and support alumni. A £50 donation could provide a travel bursary allowing one of our regional alumni to attend a job interview, while £100 could allow us to provide resilience training to our Network delegates, to better prepare them for managing a career as a freelancer.
