EDTVFEST 2019

2019 was a record-breaking year for the Festival, with it’s highest number of delegates, a 50:50 gender split of speakers, and the first time a prop was used during the MacTaggart Lecture – as Dorothy Byrne held up a herring whilst simultaneously calling out policitians for their lies. Byrne’s speech, by turns funny and ferocious, and with an added whistlestop tour of past MacTaggart efforts, has gone down in history as one of the best yet.

SPONSOR THE 2020 FESTIVAL

The Edinburgh Television Festival is a non-profit-making organisation with charitable status, relying solely on revenue raised from sponsorship and delegate fees.

Sponsorship at the Festival goes far beyond typical brand ‘badging’, as we seek to create sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships that enable our sponsors to contribute to and enhance the overall Festival experience while achieving their ROI objectives on their investment.
