Zespa Media Brings Hit Chinese TV Shows to Edinburgh TV Festival


The Edinburgh TV Festival had a special guest this year: a Chinese delegation headed by Zespa Media.

The Chinese delegation consisted of senior executives of leading Chinese production companies such as Shandong Film & TV Media International, CHS Media and Zhejiang Satellite TV.

As an official partner of the Edinburgh TV Festival, Zespa Media co-organised two China-themed events: “Welcome Breakfast: Working with China” and “Panel Discussion: Dancing with Dragons-How to Get a Commission in China”

The welcome breakfast was the first event of the 3-day festival, attracting a full house of TV producers and executives across the world. The Chinese delegation took this opportunity to not only showcase their top-rated TV shows such as The Longest Day in Changan, Nirvana in Fire and Da Yu, but also made new connections with international peers and explored a range of collaboration opportunities.

Attendees got a comprehensive overview of the Chinese media and entertainment landscape and first-hand insights into evolving market opportunities, covering topics from co-development and co-production, to financing and distribution.

China Global TV Network news crew went to Edinburgh to cover the events:
