Celtic Media Festival gears up to tackle ‘big issues’

SOME of the biggest issues facing broadcasting in the ‘Celtic’ nations and regions, including Scotland, are to be “tackled head-on” in the 30th annual Celtic Media Festival.

Taking place next month, in Wales, the festival – which celebrates work from Brittany, Cornwall and Ireland, as well as Scotland and Wales – the festival promises, among other things, sessions on the future of commercial television, public service broadcasting in the ‘nations and regions’ and the funding policies of the ‘Celtic broadcasters’.

The festival is now taking bookings.
