Organisers have confirmed the event will take place at the EICC in the Scottish capital between 24 and 26 August.
News on this year’s speakers, sessions and the new advisory chair will be announced in due course, organisers said, adding that there will be in-person and live streamed sessions hosted in the months leading up to the event.
These will include a ‘BBC at a Crossroads’ panel on Thursday, 10 February at 09.30 UK hosted by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, discussing the future of the BBC and the licence fee.
Campbell Glennie, Edinburgh TV Festival’s MD, said: “We’re thrilled to be back in the city we love to bring the whole TV industry together for a much-needed and well-deserved celebration. The past two years have raised vital issues which we will continue to address at 2022’s Festival as well as showcasing the very best of the global TV landscape. We can’t wait to see you all there.”
