Edinburgh TV Festival launch ConnectED platform

ConnectED is an online international hub that connects broadcasters, distributors and agents with like-minded producers and content creators from across the UK, Europe, the US, China and beyond.

Funded through Creative Europe’s Access to Markets scheme, the hub gives key commissioners, distributors and agents across these territories the opportunity to communicate their tastes, wish lists and showcase their hits via personalised information zones containing clips, interviews and concise ‘flash cards’. It aims to make businesses more effective by helping them source ideas that fit their model, editorial and commercial needs more effectively.

You can browse dedicated sections on Finland, Belgium, Canada, South Africa, Sweden, with information on the USA set to launch soon.

Festival Director Lisa Campbell said:

“ConnectED’s aim is to break down barriers to creativity by sharing information that will enable the international TV community to flourish. Being a part of EITF’s international ConnectED Hub will help commissioners, distributors and agents connect with the most relevant, top flight content creators in their field regardless of their location.”
