CMF is held in late Spring in the heartland of one of the Celtic nations and regions.

For nearly 40 years, CMF has been bringing together those who cherish the languages and cultures of the Celtic countries as portrayed on screen and broadcast. It is a unique festival that has grown and flourished, on a scale that attracts the best conference speakers and that can showcase emerging talent yet intimate enough for delegates to meet the decision-makers you need to meet.

The Celtic Media Festival is supported by broadcast, film, cultural and economic development organisations throughout the Celtic countries and regions.
