Speakers 2017

'As a guest speaker at CPH last year, I found the audiences to be crisply intelligent and highly committed to the subjects at hand, which personally added greatly to the intensity of my sessions. As far as our hosts, the festival organizers and staff were all warmly supportive, generous and just great at pulling together the numerous events and venues without a hitch. And, as an extra bonus, Copenhagen itself is a remarkable city; at once stately and magical. Overall, this was one of the most delightful and engaging teaching/talking events I've ever experienced.' 
Richard Price, creator and screenwriter, 'The Night of', 'The Wire' etc.

'The Copenhagen TV Festival is an excellent opportunity to meet industry professionals from around the world to discuss and share the challenges as well as the success stories we’ve all experienced to help us grow in our field. It’s a place where we not only established some great connections but also got to explore the beauty of Copenhagen. A personal highlight was definitely the boat ride to the speakers’ dinner so if you have a chance to attend any planned events make sure you don’t miss them. A massive thank you and well done to the organizers for such a warm and thoughtful welcoming'. 
Marina Kosareva, correspondent, Documentary Channel RTD

'I had a great time at the Copenhagen TV Festival. It's rare to find an event where the organisers let creativity and culture speak for themselves - rather than panels of sponsors rehearsing their talking points the festival was crammed with an eclectic and thought provoking schedule across every aspect of storytelling on screens. Smoothly organised and with a friendly, approachable feel - highly recommended.' 
Nicholas Walters, CEO,
