Celtic Media Festival

Announcement - Festival 2021

In 2020 we made the decision to cancel Celtic Media Festival and looked towards 2021 to bring the festival to Quimper. Our team has been working extremely hard behind the scenes and taking advice from experts from the many Nations and Regions we serve in order to present the best “in-person” festival possible in September. Working across several different countries, and monitoring travel advice between all these places, as well as keeping across the rules for indoor events in 2021’s location, and the fluctuating situations internationally, it is with a heavy heart that we must once again cancel travelling to Quimper for 2021’s Celtic Media Festival in September.

Celtic Media Festival 2021, we’re happy to say, will still go ahead in an online capacity. The networking, panel sessions, pitching that we are known for, and of course Torc Awards for Excellence will take place from 7th-9th of September on a bespoke platform. It presents the festival team with a unique opportunity to deliver the festival in a new way, and for this year only, we will be making Celtic Media Festival completely free of charge. We will be providing you all with more information in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we’re excited to announce the nominees for the Torc Awards for Excellence on the 14th of June.

Rest assured, Celtic Media Festival will be in Quimper in 2022 and we can’t wait to celebrate together again soon!

With lots of love,

The CMF Team
