Although we won’t be in Edinburgh this year, we are already looking forward to returning to the city in 2022.

For 2021 the Edinburgh TV Festival will be digital, but bigger, better and more accessible than ever before. Following from the success of last year’s event we will be returning for four-days of live streamed sessions with everything you’d expect: entertainment, debates on the pressing issues within our industry, spotlight discussions with top channel heads from the biggest UK and International channels and platforms, panel discussions and roundtables – and of course the MacTaggart Lecture.

We are also delighted to announce the Creative Diversity Network (CDN) as our official 2021 Accessibility Partner. This partnership will help dramatically improve our digital accessibility plans for the Festival.  This year we are introducing a new user interface which conforms to WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines. We will also be providing live-captioning across all our sessions for those who enjoy or need it and providing BSL interpreters.
