Years running: 44 (since 1979)

Banff International TV Festival

International TV Festival in Canada.


The Banff Television Festival is an annual forum owned by a not-for-profit foundation and produced for the benefit of the community it serves. Each year Canadian specialists gather here, but also numerous independent American producers and representatives from Asia and Europe in order to exchange detailed information about programs, new concepts and ideas. The seminars and forums focus on the discussion of new concepts and formats, their financing and sales chances.
