Celtic Media Festival International Pitching Forum

Celtic Media Festival strives not only to foster collaborations between the Celtic Nations and Regions, but to bring the wider broadcasting community to our delegates.

To this end, the Celtic Media Festival International Pitching Forum was created in 2016.
