Broadcast journalist Felicity Barr and the founder of Circle Circle Films and film director, Matt Smith, will reveal details of the making of Rooney, the biopic for Prime Video that follows the journey in the career of football player Wayne Rooney, from his professional debut at the age of 16 to becoming Manchester United and England's all-time top scorer.

Ria Hebden, TV presenter and broadcaster, will host a special conversation with award-winning actor and producer Adam Deacon about his recent projects, his thoughts on the current status of the industry, mental health, diversity and inclusion.

Ade Adepitan MBE, TV presenter, paralympic medallist & journalist will lead a session called Will TV ever have the ability to see past disability? She will be joined by Ally Castle, Creative Strategist & Disability Consultant from Ideally Consulting, and Joshua Lloyd, Freelance Editor in TV & Film.

Keynotes on the 12 May will start with Removing stigmas, breaking boundaries and smashing the status Quo, a conversation around diversity and inclusion in television, led by actor and TV presenter John Partridge, and with the participation of World of Wonder’s co-founder Fenton Bailey & RuPaul’s Drag Race UK alumni Kitty Scott-Claus.

And as gender equality gains more importance in the industry, MPTS will also feature a panel of female industry leaders across a variety of roles within the TV and film industries.

Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director, said, “The diversity of our speaker programme this year reflects the current state of the industry. Amazing panels and conferences will show the behind the scenes of some of our favourite films and series, but they’ll also reflect on how entertainment can promote diversity and inclusion in our society”.

  • We get to showcase, network, collaborate, learn and experience so many aspects of this profession. We met some game-changing clients and contacts who have added significant long term value to our external operation. With the Technology sector integrated this year, we're excited to understand how that could broaden our reach even further...

  • For the industry, shows like this are so important because everyone is working on their own thing and working incredibly hard, sometimes you have to step back and take a look at what other people are doing, what the competition are doing and bounce off one and other. So to have a situation where you can meet other industry professionals and discuss some of the challenges that you’ve faced, I think it can only be a good thing.
