    Go to Banff World Media Festival 2024


Now in its 42nd year, BANFF is an international conference and marketplace where new business partnerships are forged and new TV, film and digital media projects are ignited. With delegates from 50+ countries, the Festival attracts the world’s top creators, producers, showrunners, talent, networks, studios, streamers, press and media companies.

We believe our industry must recognize and act on its role in the movements for social, political, and environmental progress. BANFF continues to drive conversation and action, highlighting the power that the entertainment industry has to change minds, change policy, and create opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented.

Though we’re not able to gather in person again in 2021, we’ve invested to re-build BANFFxchange into what we think is the world’s best online meeting and content environment designed specifically for the entertainment business.

In addition to high-end keynotes, topical panel discussions, celebrity Master Classes and more, BANFF delegates have access to exclusive meeting opportunities. Our signature Speed Meetings, 30 Minutes With buyer mandates, and Coffee With group sessions offer unparalleled access to senior executives from the world’s networks, streamers and media companies. And, we’ve added even more innovative formats to connect this year.

Our vibrant virtual delegate lounge environments will feature exhibitors and a communal space where individuals can connect for scheduled meetings, special curated events and serendipitous networking.

Companies and delegations will gather in branded Pavilions featuring multiple meeting spaces, and every delegate has their own customized private video conferencing room. Integrated messaging and scheduling tools make the virtual meeting or pitching experience easy.

We can’t wait to see you there.

Every time I’ve gone to BANFF, a development deal has been launched. It’s unmissable.
