London TV Screenings Welcomed 500-Plus Buyers


Following last year’s inaugural virtual festival, the first in-person London TV Screenings welcomed more than 500 buyers throughout the week.

Clients from all major markets—Africa, Australia, China, the Middle East, the U.S. and across Europe—attended the event, which ran from February 28 to March 4.

More than 15 live events included world premiere screenings, as well as bespoke sessions. There was also access to program-makers and talent, including Poldark’s Aidan Turner, comedian/presenter Michael McIntyre and Dan Baldwin, managing director of Hungry Bear, plus executive producers Jake Lushington from World Productions and ITV Studios’ Patrick Spence, Kudos co-MDs Martin Haines and Karen Wilson, and writers, including George Kay.

A spokesperson for The London TV Screenings said: “The attendance at The London TV Screenings was excellent–despite ongoing travel restrictions. Top-level buyers from around the world gathered to do business with the leading content London-based providers—and it was an effective, efficient and enjoyable experience for all. The high caliber of content and visiting executives has firmly placed The London TV Screenings on the industry map and we will be back in 2023.”
