Is it time up for Broadcast Television?
This year the Belfast Media Festival is going back to basics, focusing all attention around television and its future.
There will also be the usual opportunities to get hands-on with current and new broadcast technology and free camera training workshops from the BBC Academy.
Sessions will also include debate around diversity in the creative industries including a showcase screening of Zhenia Mahdi's thought-provoking 'Tapestry of Colours', debate and insight around funding for Indies, a session on the Irish Language, the usual highlight session 'Meet The Commissioners', and a new venture: The BMF Showcase. This event, on Thursday 12 September from 10am- 1pm is aimed at graduates, students and any young person interested in a career in the creative industries. There will be media professionals from all sectors to talk to, demonstrations of camera and digital equipment. The BBC Academy and Channel 4's 4Talent will be present to discuss new initiatives, and the BBC Academy's 'Getting In' session will give advice on how to make that final breakthrough into the industry
