Celtic Media Festival Opens Its Call for Entries
13 Sep 2018 :
Film and programme makers can now submit entries for the prestigious ‘Torc Awards for Excellence’ awarded by the festival.

The Celtic Media Festival is an annual three day celebration of broadcasting, film talent and excellence from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Cornwall, Brittany and Galicia. Its aim is to promote the languages and cultures of the Celtic countries on screen and in broadcasting. The Celtic Media Festival is supported by broadcast, film, cultural and economic development organisations throughout the Celtic countries.

Supported by BBC Scotland, RTÉ, TG4, BBC Wales, Northern Ireland Screen, BBC Northern Ireland, Television De Galicia, XPO North, MG ALBA, S4C and the Highland Council, the festival consistently attracts international delegates wherever it is held and offers a programme that celebrates the influential media industry of the Celtic nations and regions, as well as providing networking opportunities for delegates and speakers alike.

2019 will mark the 40th anniversary of the festival, which takes place in Aviemore, Scotland for the first time in its history. A total of 23 Torc Awards will be presented at the 2019 Festival. Past winners of Torc Awards for Excellence include BBC shows ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘Poldark', RTE’s ‘Love/Hate’, and TG4’s’s ‘Corp + Anam’. Categories include Factual Series, Arts, Drama, Sport, Current Affairs and Radio Station of the Year.

Previous guests of the festival include Bodyguard and Line of Duty creator and writer Jed Mercurio, Tilda Swinton, Rhys Ifans, Peter Mullan, Ken Loach and A Very English Scandal, Doctor Who and Torchwood producer Russell T Davies.

Catriona Logan, Festival Director, said:

“We’re so delighted to be back in Scotland for the 40th Celtic Media Festival. We’re breaking records every year and it’s testament to the explosion of creativity and output in the creative content and broadcast sector in the Celtic regions. Each year the quality and quantity of productions submitted through the Call for Entries gets bigger and better.”

The 40th Celtic Media Festival takes place from 4th-6th June 2019. Full details of the festival programme, delegate registration, and how to purchase tickets, will be announced early next year.
