About Us

About Celtic Media Festival The Celtic Media Festival is  an annual 3 day event that promotes the languages and cultures of the Celtic Nations and Regions in media. It combines a major conference of seminars and master classes with  presentation of  coveted prizes in an international competition across all the main content genres in TV, radio, film and digital media.

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

For over 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.
