Banff World Media Festival Recap

By Events

What a whirlwind! It seemed like every corner you rounded in Banff, a pitch was being thrown at a broadcaster, a writer was talking to a producer, or you were struggling to remember a name from last night’s “networking” party…like the AMPIA 40th Anniversary Party!
