Sure Toronto has TIFF, but I’m starting to think that Alberta finally has something similar with the ever-growing Banff World Media Festival!  A cool mix of media, movies and television shows, has been bringing in bigger and bigger names each and every year.  Last year’s festival had Nigel Lythgoe, Ricky Gervais, William Shatner and Eric McCormack.

Even though Banff 2011  is still months away, they’ve already announced a really good line up that has  the media-geek in me really, really excited! Comedian Howie Mandell, Web superstar Felicia Day,  20th Century Fox Chairmen Dana Walden & Gary Newman, Funny or Die’s Mark Farah are all lined up and I’m guessing there will be some huge announcements in the coming week.

On top of some amazing speakers, the festival also plays home to the World Television Awards and gives audiences an unprecedented access to some of the top minds in Hollywood.

This will be my third time going to the festival and I’m always so fascinated by the people who don’t go.  If you are working (or looking to work) in online media, television or film, then can you just trust me when I say that you should come to the festival?  And for god sake’s, please bring business cards!

Can it please June now?!

  1. obviously like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I’ll surely come back again.

  2. My wife and i have been absolutely fortunate that Louis could round up his investigations by way of the precious recommendations he grabbed through your blog. It is now and again perplexing to just choose to be giving out hints which often other folks may have been selling. And we all see we’ve got the writer to be grateful to because of that. All the explanations you have made, the simple web site menu, the relationships your site aid to promote – it’s mostly extraordinary, and it is making our son and the family recognize that the matter is exciting, which is certainly exceptionally vital. Thank you for everything!

  3. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very wide for me. I am having a look forward to your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!
