The TellyCast Digital Content Forum sponsored by BBC Studios takes place at BFI Southbank in London on 30th November 2022.

The first event of its kind in the UK, the TellyCast Digital Content Forum sponsored by BBC Studios will create an environment for producers, brands, media agencies, platforms and the wider content industry to gather, learn, debate and share insight on the business opportunities in the fast-developing world of digital-first content.

Panel sessions during the day designed to provide actionable insights will focus on production, development, community building, IP, formats, brand funded content challenges and opportunities for all those working in digital content.

Delegates will also have plenty of opportunity to network with producers, networks, platforms, brands, media agencies, industry bodies and media.

TellyCast has partnered with BBC Studios as headline sponsor of the event – a global producer of award-winning branded entertainment, podcasts and digital content, whose growing digital portfolio is viewed over 2bn times a month across online and social channels including BBC.com, BBC Earth and Top Gear.

Other event partners include Deadline, PACT, Edinburgh TV Festival, Quintus Studios, After Party Studios and post production specialists Racoon.
