THE Edinburgh International TV festival rolls into town this week and you're invited.
The fest, brought by YouTube and BT, is normally only open to Telly Big Wigs and a beautiful media crowd, but this year they are throwing open the doors of exclusive showings to punters.
The Filmhouse Cinema has a number of events happening on Wednesday and Thursday from a Sci fi masterclass with Ronald D Moore of Star Trek and Outlander fame to screenings and Q & As with writers like Doug Naylor from Red Dwarf and writer and actor Shane Allen and Kevin Bishop from Porridge. There are also screenings of People Just Do Nothing, Fortitude, The Fall and Poldark and for the first time in TV Festival history, access to see CEO of VICE Shane Smith speak at the MacTaggart, and Sharon Horgan be interviewed by Frankie Boyle in the Alternative MacTaggart.
The TV festival is one of the highlights of Edinburgh festival diary and we love bumping into the colourful characters who attend.
This year stars appearing at the main event include Lee Mack, Russell T Davies, Mel B and Professor Green.
